Latino Civic Engagement Program


Since its creation, LCLAA has been actively engaged in outreach and organizing to increase civic engagement in Latino and immigrant communities via voter education, registration, GOTV and voter protection.

LCLAA demands the protection of our voting rights and firmly opposes any legislation that is detrimental to the registration and turnout of Latino and minority voters. At approximately 50.5 million, Latinos are the largest minority and the fastest growing segment of the population in the United States.  The political inclusion of Latino working families in federal, state and local elections is essential to their empowerment through political, social and economic advancement.  LCLAA works at the local and national level to prevent the disenfranchisement and voter suppression affecting minority communities in the United States and ensures that Latinos are not denied their constitutional 15th amendment right to vote.

From the door step to polling places, LCLAA is on the ground mobilizing Latino voters, working in coalitions to bring a powerful message to our communities and educate them around issues such as Education, Health, Immigration, Economic Stimulus, Civil Rights and Labor Rights.  As a trusted vehicle in the community, LCLAA has an opportunity to highlight the important role that unions play in the lives of Latino Working Families.
