Hope CommUnity Center believes in empowering community members to be active and engaged in local government and policymaking.
Political Education: HCC provides opportunities for community members to learn more about different political issues, strategizing, and coalition work. Every year, we fund community members’ attendance at the annual FLIC Congress, where they can learn about changes to immigration policy and ways to advocate for immigrant rights.
Legislative Session: Since 2011, HCC has participated in the Florida Immigrant Coalition’s We are Florida campaign. Community members travel to Tallahassee to advocate for issues they are concerned about to their state representatives. The community share their stories and learn more about how legislative session can impact their community. For the Legislative sessions dates click here.
