CASA in Action is a nonprofit 501(c)(4) organization that engages in educational activities and legislative and political advocacy in support of Latinos and immigrants in Maryland and Virginia.
CASA in Action facilitates greater electoral and campaign engagement by Latinos and immigrants in Maryland and Virginia by providing political education to Latinos and getting them to the polls. Since its inception in 2010, CASA in Action has attracted over 50,000 members.
During election years, CASA in Action engages voters through political debates, questionnaires to candidates and candidate endorsements, Spanish-language earned media, voter registration, and Get-Out-The Vote activities.
When CASA in Action endorses a candidate, it bases that decision on the candidate’s position on priorities chosen by our members. Our members vote for those candidates who align with their vision for a more just society. And that endorsement is communicated to Latino voters.
Our members care about a significant number of problems common to working people across the state – how safe is it to walk down the street, how affordable is their housing, are the schools doing an adequate job of educating their children. In addition, our members care about a candidate’s position on immigration. Stance on immigration is important to Latino voters. A large number of Latino and immigrant voters live in mixed-status families and, particularly in Maryland and Virginia, a large number of Latino voters are immigrants themselves. Even for Latino voters with no personal relationship to immigration, polls reflect that for a super-majority of Latino voters, the nastiness of the immigration debate is the salient factor in determining how they sense they are treated by the broader community.
