Founded in 1909 in response to the ongoing violence against Black people around the country, the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) is the largest civil rights organization in the nation. Their mission is to secure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights in order to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons. The NAACP, along with 1 million plus members, advocates, and activists throughout the United States, are frontline advocates committed to raising awareness for political, educational, social, and economic equality for communities of color in the electoral and legislative process. With approximately 2,200 adult branches, youth councils, and college chapters in 50 states, 5 countries and the District of Columbia, the NAACP is actively engaged in increasing the African American responsiveness of citizens to be fully engaged in the democratic process.

Hispanic Movement is a project of Latinos for Democracy (LFD), aimed at increasing Latino civic engagement and voter turnout, especially in face of the two main events of that will shape the next years of our communities: The 2020 Election Day and the 2020 Census.
Latinos for Democracy is a coalition comprised of the Hispanic Federation (HF), The Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA) and the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC).
Latinos for Democracy launched this initiative to create a nonpartisan, culturally competent virtual tool that guides citizens on how to register to vote, participate in the census and engage civically online.
Over the past decade, the members of Latinos for Democracy have worked with over 2.1 million Latino Trade unionists, 135,000 volunteer members, and over 100 community-based organizations to advance Latino voter mobilization.
