Mobilize the Immigrant Vote!

The Mobilize the Immigrant Vote (MIV) California Collaborative was started in 2004 as the first-ever statewide campaign in California to organize a multi-ethnic coalition of community-based organizations working within immigrant communities and building their capacity to register, educate, and mobilize their constituents for electoral participation.

MIV is a non-partisan organization that follows all of the legal guidelines for 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations.

The MIV Campaign is staffed and governed by a Coordinating Committee made up of five coalitions and coalition-conveners: the California Partnership (CAP); the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA); the Korean Resource Center (KRC); Partnership for Immigrant Leadership and Action (PILA); and Services, Immigrant Rights, and Education Network (SIREN).

The heart and soul of our campaign are the 100-plus community-based organizations across California that participate in MIV's annual campaigns. Our current campaign partners are:
