Win and Turn Back Trump

Win and Turn Back Trump

This election we reject the status quo & organize under strategic necessity to create the conditions that drive change from the ground up.

Mijente is proud to release the first national comprehensive study on Latinx attitudes about policing and public safety in the United States and Puerto Rico. We believe in our gente and our communities, that together we can envision and build futures beyond the constraints of punitive measures.

This report comes through collaboration between Mijente, Perry Undem, the Community Resource Hub, and the Center for Advancing Innovative Policy. Below are a few highlights from the documnet, but you can access the full report findings in the box above.

We commissioned this study to better understand Latinx experiences and develop strategic organizing interventions and resources. The results tell a story that mirrors the Latinx diaspora as a whole: our gente’s political perspectives vary drastically depending on any number of factors.

One out of 10 Latinxs report that a police officer has pointed a gun at them. While one in 3 Afro-Latinxs reports that they or a family member has had that experience.
71% of Latinx Republicans express support for changing the laws to prevent police violence.

Still, in analyzing thousands of responses across 11 different focus groups, it is clear that our gente believe that making communities safer is about resources, jobs, and education, not more police. Together, we can develop opportunities to mobilize communities, inform new organizing, and sharpen political demands.
