Our mission is to promote the principles and practices of institutional and grassroots democracy and to advance the political, social and economic standing of Latinos and Latinas in the state.
We seek to reach these goals as a member-driven organization through public policy, leadership development, civic engagement, progressive electoral reform and active voter mobilization.
¿Oíste? La Iniciativa de Educación Cívica de los Latinos de Massachussets (501 C3) was established in 2000. Its primary purpose is the creation of an educated Latino civic base that is involved in civic processes, local groups, and the power of citizenship education. ¿Oíste? has designed workshops and educational materials in Spanish and English with the purpose of teaching Latinos about the function of the government and the important issues in the community. These workshops are bilingual and are offered locally free of cost.
