Programs: Economic justice: the organization worked with other organizations, such as seiu, on a one miami campaign to educate workers on their rights to organize and to make a fair wage.

Furthermore, the organization coordinated with other (c)(4) groups to look into and coordinate on other economic justice campaigns and to plan for future actions.
voter rights and fair elections: the organization participated in work with statewide groups in florida and pennsylvania to both spread messaging and educate people on the redistricting process. In addition to this, the organization worked to educate voters on their rights regarding both voter registration and the voting process. The organization also worked with other (c)(4) groups in the states to coordinate on upcoming issues and potential areas of work in the next year and years to come.
immigration reform: the organization worked to spread information on the need for comprehensive immigration reform as well as to educate the public on the need for the dream act on both the national as well as state levels - this would allow young immigrants brought to this country by their parents the ability to become permanent legal residents if they do not break the law, graduate high school, and intend to go on to further education or serve in the military. In addition to this, the organization worked with other groups locally and nationally to plan for upcoming legislation and potential issue campaigns surrounding the immigration issue both nationwide and on the state and local level.
