Thank you to all who joined us last weekend.

We do need your help promoting our CITIZENSHIP WORKSHOP for this weekend on Saturday, June 17th!  Please see the link below to help LPR’s who are eligible to become U.S. citizens sign up for the FREE workshop to help them fill out their paperwork!

We do hope you will find some time to join us and volunteer on making the #GALatinoVote stronger than ever in the Congressional District #6 run-off election.  Latino voters can make the difference if we show up to vote!  YOUR help canvassing them and making phone calls is needed!
 

Please join our advocacy efforts by joining our texting campaign.  The image to the right is our latest way to engage with our supporters in a timely manner and make our efforts more effective.  Please stay engaged by texting the word IMMIGRATION to the short code number 864-237.  This will add you to our texting program to ensure we speak up at needed times.

Please see other ways in which you can engage below.
