ADVOCATING FOR PROGRESSIVE CHANGE IN ARIZONA - ONE COMMUNITY AT A TIME
WHO WE ARE
Our Voice, Our Vote – Arizona is a member-led organization committed to advocating for lasting progressive public policies, we are building power by mobilizing voters, training the next generation of leaders, electing champions into office, and holding elected officials accountable. By putting people first, we are working to develop and lift up voices of communities to take on our nations most pressing issues.
ALL students in ALL neighborhoods deserve access to high quality public education. We stand for justice, we fight for equity!
Our ancestors died for us to have the right to vote. We plan to defend this right at every turn. We are committed to ensuring Arizona is a place that has free and fair elections.
FAIR AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING
We believe change is good, but not at the expense of just poor urban communities. As economic development grows, we will be on the front lines protecting against gentrification that doesn't ensure fair and affordable housing for our community.
A disproportionate quantity of minority communities play host to landfills, incinerators, and other potentially toxic facilities. We fight for the fair distribution of benefits and burdens to all communities to ensure there is environmental justice.
CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM
Communities of color, disproportionately reflect the prison population in this country. 95% of all cases are plea bargained which means prosecutors play a major role in criminal justice reform. We focus on tackling the problem where it exists to end mass incarceration in Arizona.
We believe Arizona must be a place that encourages and demands employers pay a fair living wage to workers in this state.
We Engage, We Educate, We Empower, We Win!
Our work is spent engaging the New American Majority! We center our fight for justice advocating for the most pressing issues affecting the Black, Latino, and Millennial communities. Building and developing leaders is at the foundation of our work. We realize this by mobilizing organizers, volunteers and partners to stand with us as we engage and empower the community to take on some of the most pressing issues we face.
