Voces de la Frontera is a membership-based community organization led by low-wage workers, immigrants and youth whose mission is to protect and expand civil rights and workers’ rights through leadership development, community organizing and empowerment.
We strive to create a world where all people live free of poverty and discrimination, have access to safe, dignified work, quality education, and health care; where immigrants can cross borders with dignity; and human rights and workers’ rights are respected; where government is truly “of the people”, and all families thrive.
Our campaigns on civil rights and social justice issues have mobilized thousands to take collective action – and our members have become leaders in community organizing.
- Advancing Workers’ Rights: Our Workers' Centers in Workers’ Centers in Milwaukee and Racine support immigrant and low-wage workers through legal clinics, ‘Know Your Rights’trainings, English classes and more.
- Youth organizing and education rights
- Pathways to legal residency, citizenship classes, and assistance with deportation defense and asylum applications
NEW SANCTUARY MOVEMENT
NSM, the "faith arm" of Voces, is a network of faith based organizations that are committed to supporting immigration reform and defending immigrant families from being torn apart by deportations. Members work directly with those in need of transportation/accompaniment to court, share migrants' stories and educate their communities on the realities behind the myths and fear-mongering, promote understanding and compassion, and participate in our annual May Day march in support of migrants. Wauwatosa Presbyterian is a proud member of the NSM network!
