Mobilize the Immigrant Vote Open House
What do the 2008 Elections mean for immigrant and working class communities? Is it ever too early to start developing your electoral program? What does it take to make an impact on the electoral arena?
MIV has developed an approach to electoral organizing that emphasizes elections work as one component of a larger movement for full participation, rights and justice. This movement-building approach to elections focuses on building leadership and capacity within low-income and immigrant communities and their organizations.
We know that the time to build capacity for 2008 in NOW! The overwhelming feedback we have received from community partners, like you, is that resources and capacity-building support of staff and grassroots leaders is needed in 2007 in order develop their 2008 electoral and civic participation plans.
PLEASE JOIN US FOR OUR OPEN HOUSE THIS APRIL! This is a great opportunity to meet other MIV groups, share our 2006 experiences and learn about MIVís NEW plans for 07 & 08!
