2010 Census

In 2010, the U.S. government will conduct its next population analysis, the 2010 Census. There is an imminent threat that low-income communities of color will not be counted sufficiently, which could have devastating effects on resource distribution and political representation. Many of the skills community organizations have developed to engage voters can be applied to engage community members in responding to the census survey. Organizations can help increase the census count by becoming a U.S. Census partner at the U.S. Census website. Educational information on the census is available from the Nonprofit Voter Engagement Network and the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights. The MIV Steering Committee will be announcing how we will incorporate the Census into our 2010 California Campaign later this year.

MIV 2008 Immigrant Voices Platform

MIV developed the 2008 Immigrant Voices Platform to identify the issues important to low-income immigrant communities. We want to provide a tool for individuals to use when deciding how to vote. We created this document with input from community members, partner organizations, and allies throughout the state. Low-income immigrants and people of color can use their vote to create positive change in California. Our votes reflect our priorities and values. All people, regardless of immigration status, have a right to quality education, good jobs, health care, public benefits, affordable housing, healthy environments, and human dignity. Our shared values are community, family, health, justice, equality, self-determination and democracy.
