NC Priorities

The North Carolina Latino isn't new or small anymore. Aquí tenemos familias, hogares, negocios, y mucho más. We have also have a role in shaping the state's political future. Mi Familia en Accion is meeting that call to action by working to grow the participation of Latino voters in NC through educating and registering nuestra gente. Our goal is to turn out to vote for a whole generation of young latinos who are the first in their families to hold the power of the vote. With #MerecemosMejorNC and we are focused on creating an inclusive state that protects and welcomes immigrant families, a state that invests in economic opportunity para todos, and local and statewide solutions for climate and environmental justice.


Latinos in NC have built deep multigenerational roots. Our community is the cultural and economic engine that has revitalized many of the urban as well as rural parts of the state. Our vision is to see those contributions reciprocated in our political and electoral representation from the local school board to the state legislative and executive offices.

With Latino youth becoming a growing force across our nation, Mi Familia en Acción intentionally provides civic leadership learning and skills development focused on Latino youth ages 18-30 years old. Through our ladder of engagement and organizing model, youth become informed, motivated, empowered, and called to action to be civic leaders. Mi Familia en Acción supports Latino youth in their individual and collective civic journey. As a result, our youth leaders have led their own voter registration drives, advocate for their issue priorities with elected officials, and support our voter mobilization efforts to get out the vote in their networks.

Latino Electoral Engagement Fellowship

LEEF selected 12 young fellows to participate in a five month program that focuses on building their leadership and organizing skills to become champions for immigrant and environmental justice issues in NC. Our fellows participate in biweekly workshops, host community civic education events, execute a community canvass, and practice lobbying and engaging state legislators.

Mi Familia en Acción has 7 priority issue areas that we actively engage community members and elected officials on. These issues include immigrant rights, workers’ rights, voting rights, access to affordable healthcare, access to quality education, climate justice, and reproductive justice. Our teams on the ground engage in city, county, and state level governments to advocate for specific policy priorities. Each year, our team educates and empowers Latino community members to understand their state’s Legislative Session. Our community-focused advocacy efforts provide individuals with the opportunity to ensure their lived experiences impact the policymaking process.
