Our mission is to work with our families, co-workers, and neighbors to improve life in Little Village, Chicago, the Midwest and nationally through democracy in action. We work for a real voice in building democracy as the basis for environmental, economic and social justice. We believe democracy means giving time and space for every voice to be heard and counted in everyday matters, full, direct participation in all types of decision-making that affects our lives, and determining the future of our neighborhood and city. We work to unite our community's talents, assets, and power to build a society that treats all of us equally: no matter what race, culture, age, religion, nationality or gender we are. In Unity we have the strength to forge economic, environmental and social justice to overcome the barriers of poverty that surround us and build self-determination. We work for justice at home and abroad, connecting our local struggle for democracy with the global one and live by the principle that, as working and poor people of color, we have the right to control our lives and resources.
