About Us

We are a new 501(c)(4) political advocacy non-profit organization, created by Latinas and Latinos, to build and grow our community's political power in the Mountain Region because we believe that this is how we can make our valleys more equitable. 

For us, having political power means being able to exercise our voice and agency to act and lead change in our communities, and having full access, opportunity and influence in all civic and political systems. 

We fight for progressive policy solutions. We train the next generation of local Latina and Latino elected leaders. And we help elect progressive candidates. This is what we do.

While affiliated, Voces Unidas Action Fund, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit, should not be confused with Voces Unidas de las Montañas, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Each independent organization does different activities in support of their missions.
