Dream

Minnesota’s Latinx community is quickly growing, but the systems in the state do not serve the needs of People of Color and immigrants. We dream of a world where everyone feels safe, has access to the resources they need, and lives a dignified life.

Organize

We aim to achieve our mission by bringing people together to fight alongside each other for the liberation of all oppressed communities.

Vote

We believe that the Latinx community must become a powerful force in the democratic process in order to fight for environmental justice, racial justice, gender justice, and immigrants' rights.

As we change societies, we must change from operating on the mode of individualism to community-centeredness. We must “walk our talk.” We must be the values that we say we’re struggling for and we must be justice, be peace, be community.
