"Chicanos Por La Causa Inc"
Chicanos Por La Causa is an advocate for underserved individuals and communities.
Chicanos Por La Causa drives economic and political empowerment.
Chicanos Por La Causa (CPLC) believes that all people, without discrimination, should have the power to live a life of dignity. Our programs work to help individuals and families acheive self-sufficiency by providing accessible healthcare; affordable housing; a quality education; access to meaningful work; and political representation.
CPLC was founded in 1969 to confront discrimination against Mexican-American students in Phoenix as part of the larger movement led by Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, and others. Today, CPLC has grown to defend the rights of people of all backgrounds, regardless of ethnicity, race, age, gender, orientation, or immigration status, while maintaining a special competence in meeting the needs of the Latino and Spanish-speaking population.
We provide direct services impacting almost 380,000 lives annually in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas.
