Pamela Gomez, Democracia USA, Tampa

Democracia USA has become the premier Hispanic organization leading successful community organizing activities around social justice issues, including civic engagement, green jobs, healthcare, immigration, and public education.

To date, we have trained hundreds of Latinos to become leaders in their communities, while organizing thousands of citizens, U.S. residents, business owners, community leaders, and allied organizations. We are one of the few organizations in the US seeking to fill the gap of Latino engagement and participation in the American democratic process by educating and empowering Hispanics in a holistic manner. Our mission is reflected in the following overall goals:

  • To create long-term, structural change by building a culture of real and meaningful civic participation within Hispanic communities;

 

  • To work with Latino communities towards garnering respect and political understanding for Hispanic Americans nationwide;

 

  • To preserve the diversity of immigrant Latino cultures while contributing to the fabric of this nation; and,

 

  • To provide Hispanics with a better way of life and hope for their future as active participants in America’s democracy.
