Civic Engagement

Cesar Chavez once said, “We don’t need perfect political system, we need perfect participation.” We at CASE agree that the key to improving futures for working families is having a real voice at work and a voice in political affairs.

CASE’s civic participation work began in the summer of 2010, when we responded to the passage of the infamous anti-immigrant law SB1070 by helping to form the One Arizona Latino Voter Engagement Roundtable. This year, One Arizona will knock its 1,000,000th door in our ongoing efforts to engage low-propensity Latino and youth voters in the voting process.

Each year since 2010, CASE’s youth volunteers and field organizers knock on tens of thousands of doors in Phoenix’s low-income neighborhoods our work has transformed Latino voting in Phoenix and helped to create a more representative government in that city—the sixth largest in the U.S. and home to approximately 20% of Arizona’s residents.

In 2016 CASE’s Civic Participation work will begin earlier than ever, as we will join our One Arizona partners in launching a state-wide voter registration project in February.
