Our Civic Engagement program aims to empower the HMoob community to be civically engaged through exercising their right to vote, providing community education, opening discussions on social issues etc. We want to build leaders and foster leadership in the HMoob community. With additional funding this year, we are able to build with our Black, Indigenous, and People of Color community organizations in La Crosse.
2020 Civic Engagement Partnerships:
Have you completed all these?!
1. Complete your 2020 Census.
We need fair distribution of resources to our community, our children, and our future. The Census data is critical because it helps us get the health care, transportation, schools, affordable housing, and higher education. OUR community utilizes and needs these resources in order to be successful. We want our communities to be SEEN, HEARD, and COUNTED.
It's not too late to complete your census questionnaire!
Deadline is October 31st, 2020.
