Working Groups: Civic Engagement

Community Empowerment.

Many of the issues that our families care about—affordable housing, jobs and economic security, access to education, and immigration reform—are decided at the state and national level of government.  From the beginning of the Equal Voice campaign, partners have sought information about the policies that affect their daily lives and how Valley families can make their voices heard by those who would claim to represent them.  

The Civic Engagement working group implements a variety of integrated voter actions, utilizing the tremendous experience and wisdom of partners who have been at this work for many, many years.
