Washington D.C. – Mi Familia Vota and the Embassy of Mexico are proud to announce that we will be working together for the well-being of the Mexican and Immigrant community in the United States through strategic services and collaboration.
Héctor Sánchez Barba, the CEO and Executive Director of Mi Familia Vota, stated:
“We are excited to partner with the Embassy of Mexico and its consular network on this strategic collaboration to empower the Mexican and immigrant communities in the United States on central issues of civic participation, resources, and information.
About This Partnership:
Mi Familia Vota has long conducted informational and educational campaigns on resources to combat COVID-19, as well as on citizenship and the DACA program. The Embassy will use its structure, consular network, and social networks to promote the Mi Familia Vota 1-800 hotline to help the Latino community obtain up-to-date information and resources on COVID-19 vaccines. The community will also be able to request appointments to receive the vaccine through that line.
We will promote the delivery of informative workshops in the Mexican consular network on the following topics:
Citizenship – To provide information to permanent residents about the mechanisms and processes of naturalization in accordance with the laws of the United States.
Know your rights – To provide information about the constitutional rights of each individual, regardless of their immigration status, as well as in case of detention.
DACA Program – To provide information on how to apply for or renew membership in the program.
COVID – Educational campaigns on resources to combat COVID-19.
Mi Familia Vota is a national civic engagement organization that unites Latino, immigrant, and allied communities to promote social and economic justice through citizenship workshops, voter registration, and voter participation. Mi Familia Vota has operations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, and Texas.
