Civic Engagement – Voter turnout at the polls has been steadily increasing over the past 20 years, however, the immigrant community in California still falls short of true democratic representation.  CHIRLA Action Fund is growing a base of grassroots leaders who will in turn encourage others to vote and turn the low-propensity voter narrative on its head.

Pro-Immigrant Policies – Pro-Immigrant policy works.  As our emerging new American communities establish roots in our community, their livelihood and long term success, just as immigrants of the past, is dependent on their hard work partnered with solid policies that pave the way for economic and social success.  The future of California depends on it.
