With growing immigrant communities, the need for effective and collaborative advocacy on issues ranging from access to healthcare, law enforcement, and access to government services has increased exponentially.
To increase voter and civic engagement in our Latinx/Hispanic communities, the Votamos, We Vote Coalition, Delaware’s first statewide coalition of advocates working toward advancement of our Latinx/Hispanic communities, has built a website to encourage new voters and the non-voting immigrant community to become engaged in our democracy.
The Votamos, We Vote Coalition, which launched in 2020, has a dedicated mission: to mobilize Latinx/Hispanic voters in the First State, and build their political power through civic engagement on community issues. The Coalition invites voters to be the voice of the voiceless through their vote, and for immigrants who don’t have the right to vote to use their power to motivate relatives and friends to be the voice that they do not have in our elections.
Members of the Votamos, We Vote Coalition include ACLU of Delaware, DE Civil Rights Coalition, DelACA, Department of Elections Commissioner, Immigrant Justice from the News Castle Presbyterian Church, Latin American Community Center, League of Women Voters-DE, Network Delaware, Office of the Delaware Ltd. Governor, Unitarian Universalist Delaware Advocacy Network, Wilmington-NAACP, YWCA Delaware, and Common Cause Delaware.
The website project was funded and coordinated by the ACLU of Delaware.
