Advocacy and Civic Engagement
Entre Hermanos is an advocacy organization that addresses social conditions that contribute to inequality. We partner with other community organizations to raise our voices for legislative priorities that benefit immigrants, low income people, youth and our Latino LGBTQ community. Entre Hermanos has participated in community campaigns such as marriage equality, immigration reform, voting rights, affordable housing and more.
Each year we bring our staff and community members to the state legislative session in Olympia, WA, to advocate for the programs that serve our communities. We meet with lawmakers to build support for immigrant, low-income, LGBT and communities of color. Typically we visit Olympia on Latino Legislative Day and also on AIDS Action and Awareness Day.
