What We Do...
Leadership Development – Using an intensive, hands-on leadership development model, we train ordinary people to lead their communities and help them act to make truly extraordinary differences.
Community Organizing – Working with these leaders we build relationships, facilitate community meetings and help organize local actions to bring positive change at the local, state and national levels.
Advocacy – We facilitate and advocate for public policies that respect the dignity of all people. Currently we are engaged throughout the County in Comprehensive and Humane Immigration Reform, a bill supporting Domestic Workers’ rights and the DREAM Act, as well as various local justice/civil rights issues.
Civic Participation – We partner with other organizations to help people in the areas of Naturalization and Civic Education. We also work to register voters throughout many of San Diego’s immigrant communities.
Health and Transportation Equity – We are an active member of local, state and national coalitions trying to advance health access and transportation equity.
Fiesta del Sol San Diego – We organize the largest Latino family festival in the County, drawing over 75,000 San Diegans, and involving hundreds of young people and community members. This vibrant event promotes culture, opportunity, justice…and fun.
