ORGANIZATIONAL STATEMENT

Our families came to Michigan from all over Mexico and Latin America. They sacrificed everything so we could live the American dream, generations of seeking a better future. We know what we deserve: access to health care, education, and protection of our right to vote. Let’s celebrate our collective resilience by advocating for the future we see possible, the one we want to build for ourselves.
