La Asamblea de Derechos Civiles is a statewide, faith-based organization which organizes immigrants from predominantly Latino congregations to build power and develop leadership in the community.  In 2015, it will secure and expand the gains of President Obama’s Executive Actions on immigration, organize for a pathway to citizenship through Congress, support driver’s licenses for all, and influence decision making to secure equitable transit and housing investments for suburban Latino communities.  La Asamblea de Derechos Civiles will continue to expand its base and develop leaders to organize local public actions and forums, bring community power to Washington DC and the Iowa Caucuses, and drive equitable systems and policy change.
