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. Years of dedication to our community has resulted in community trust, and recently, recognition for efforts as MFV’s work has expanded and refined.
For years, Mi Familia Vota has been relentless in its goal to build Latino political power in our communities leading to its first national award: a ‘Medallion’ from the National Association of Secretaries of State.
As civic engagement efforts flourished, MFV reached a landmark 250,000 voter registrations in 2018. For the first time in MFV history, the field work was accompanied by communications campaigns to support the field.
The integration of digital outreach led to four Reed Awards presented by Campaigns & Elections, including for Non-profit Grassroots Organization of the Year.
