Votos y Voces
La Fuente believes that the power of our organization rests in the strength of our members. Our Leadership Development Institute brings together those diverse individuals who share a vision for better communities and want to be instruments for achieving it. With veteran activists and organizers as well as the unique experiences each member brings, the LDI is an environment for both personal and communal growth.
Few issues hit home like education. To be prepared for the future, every child needs a quality education from early childhood all the way through college. For schools to function educators must be given the resources they need to succeed. Students and teachers alike require buildings that are both well-equipped and well-maintained. Schools should serve all children, and comprehensive services and supports must be in place for students with special needs.
La Fuente engages at every level of activism to ensure our children are receiving an enriching education. We believe parents are the strongest force in the fight to save our city's schools, and to spark their potential. This is why we engage in campaigns that collaborate with parents, teachers and the community as whole to make sure that each child receives the best education available.
This nation was built by immigrants, it is powered by immigrant workers and its future rests in our ability to develop its immigrant population. In seeking immigration reform, we seek economic opportunities for would-be tax paying citizens and educational opportunities that would allow our immigrant youth to contribute their full potential. We seek a path to citizenship that would keep families together and bring peace of mind to hard working parents. While we are ready to fight with all we've got to accomplish comprehensive reform, we believe that all you need is love.
Access to Services
Caring for your community is not as simple as providing services- we must ensure these services are accessible to all who need them. From ensuring the availability of bilingual police officers to cleaning and renovating playgrounds, we are teaming up with our friends and neighbors to create a truly just society.
Votos y Voces
Every voice matters. This couldn't be more true for the millions of immigrant citizens who, through voting, could steer the political climate of our city and our nation. Our Votos y Voces (Votes and Voices) program hits the streets of NY and NJ to unsilence tens of thousands of voters who may be lacking in the knowledge necessary to make an educated vote, who need a bit more confidence in the power they hold and the responsibility that comes with it.

All You Need is Love
Our All You Need is Love campaign believes that love is the key to immigration reform. From sharing handwritten messages from our immigrant neighbors about how reform will unite their loved ones, to thanking our elected officials with flowers and a mariachi serenade, what better way to display Latin culture…
