Over the past 20+ years of Voces de la Frontera, we’ve witnessed our power when we come together: developing youth leadership on the frontlines of the movement for DACA, the Dream Act and public school funding, winning pro-sanctuary policies that separate ICE from local law enforcement in the City and County of Milwaukee, and defeating statewide anti-sanctuary bills through a Day Without Latinos mass general strikes. In 2020 we founded the Essential Worker Rights Network to save the lives of hundreds of workers and their families who were not being protected during the pandemic, and we continue to offer workshops and training to build their leadership in the workplace.
Through our political arm, Voces de la Frontera Action, we have organized Latino and multi-racial youth voters to drive out office far right elected officials such as former Milwaukee County Sheriff Clarke, former Assembly Speaker Paul Ryan, former President Trump and helped elect pro-immigrant candidates such as Governor Tony Evers and won numerous local historic elections that brought first time Latinos, people of color and women to local and state office.
We know the struggle is long to win our shared dream to win back driver licenses, tuition equity and achieve immigration reform for millions. To achieve our shared dream we must persevere, build on our work and chart a new course for the next two years. We’re counting on YOUR participation and presence on Saturday, January 28th at 9:00 a.m.!
