Mijente

Mijente combines digital and in-person organizing to create a hub for Latinx movement building with the goal of increasing participation of Latinx and Chicanx people in the wider movements for racial, economic, climate and gender justice. In 2018, the organization is building creative multiracial coalitions to mobilize voters across the nation with the goal of pivotal wins in Senate, gubernatorial, and down-ballot races. This Spring, the organization conducted a field campaign targeting the growing electorate of bilingual, bicultural people in Georgia. These efforts helped to mobilize Latinx support for the primary, and as a result, early data indicated that the Latinx early vote quadrupled and that half of those who voted early were Latinx. In addition to this pivotal work win Georgia, the organization is leading a multi-city organizing tour in partnership with local grassroots organizations fight against the discrimination and economic exploitation of immigrant communities. The organization’s other work includes campaigns to confront police violence in Arizona, the criminalization of immigrant and black communities in Chicago, and the displacement of low-income residents in Colorado.
