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.
