Democracy in Action
Mano a Mano Family Resource Center recognizes that advocacy on behalf of our community is an essential strategy to accomplishing our stated vision and mission. We acknowledge that influencing public policy, decision-making processes, and public sentiment are legal and powerful ways to advance the interests of our community and our organization.
Democracy in Action (DIA) is a program within Mano a Mano Family Resource Center that focuses on engaging and uplifting the voices of the traditionally marginalized and underrepresented communities and mobilizing them to take action and do their civic duties.
DIA has been focused on working with North Chicago community members to get people involved whether it be organizing events, educating the public on local issues, registering people to vote, and more.
