Advocacy & Policy
In collaboration with community members and organizations, we advocate and lobby for local and state-wide laws that advance and protect Immigrant rights in Washington state.
Our community-based trainings and workshops empower immigrant and undocumented communities to know their rights, de-mystify the legal process, and build collective power.
WHY YOUR PARTICIPATION IS IMPORTANT.
THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE COUNTED IN THE CENSUS DETERMINES HOW MUCH MONEY OUR COMMUNITY RECEIVES FOR THINGS SUCH AS:
the number of teachers in our schools.
the number of bus routes for our city
the need for affordable housing.
The number of nurses and beds in our hospitals.
How many representatives will the State of Washington have in Congress.
The availability of benefits such as food stamps and health insurance.
BEING COUNTED IS OUR OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW THAT WE ARE HERE AND THAT WE MATTER.
