Welcome to Presente.org's member-led campaign platform: ¡SOMOS! With more than 300,000 members nationwide, Presente.org is the nation’s largest online Latinx organizing group; advancing social justice with technology, media, and culture. By amplifying the political voice of the Latinx community, we aim to create a more just society for all people. The ¡SOMOS! platform is a way for our members to access the tools and resources they need to lead change on issues that further our goals and increase our impact.
What can I run a campaign on?
What issues matters most to you? Is there an opportunity to make positive change on a systemic issue affecting the Latinx community? Is there a chance to stop efforts to further marginalize our community? Will your campaign bring us closer to a more just and equal society for Latinx folks and others?
Your campaign can be on a national or highly local issue. You may target Congress or your local school board, as long as they have the power to create the change you want to see. A clear goal and strong strategy are key for the right campaigns.
What can't I campaign on?
Campaigns must revolve around issues impacting Latinx people and strive to strengthen Latinx political power. We are not alone, and when we work to protect Latinx lives and interests, we do the same for all who have been left behind in political silence.
Of course, any campaign that is defamatory, discriminatory, promotes violence, bullying, or exclusion, will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to use our judgment and take something down if it crosses a line of common decency, so please take responsibility for your campaign.
Why take action?
Our collective voices are powerful enough to create the change we want to see. Everyday, corporations, institutions, and the government make decisions that harm our community, and everyday, people raise their voices to end discrimination and inequality—with real results. We must do everything we can to ensure that sure all Americans are represented, served, and protected—regardless of race or class.
