Mission Statement

Our mission is reflected in the following overall goals:

  • To create long-term, structural change by building a culture of real and meaningful civic participation within Hispanic communities;
  • To work with Latino communities towards garnering respect and political understanding for Hispanic Americans nationwide;
  • To preserve the diversity of immigrant Latino cultures while contributing to the fabric of this nation; and,
  • To provide Hispanics with a better way of life and hope for their future as active participants in America's democracy.

Description

Democracia USA (DUSA), is a national, multi-year, non-partisan Hispanic voter registration, civic engagement and leadership development organization that seeks to increase the prominence and participation of Latinos in the American democratic process. In less than five years, Democracia USA has grown from an operation of six full time staff to a thriving organization of more than 50, with eight offices across six crucial states and Washington DC: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, Nevada, and Pennsylvania. By the end of 2010, D-USA will also have established new offices in Texas and New Mexico.
