You are someone who wants to be a part of something bigger than yourself. You understand that we are all part of the community, and you want to make a difference.

We are advocates with a causa to empower lives politically and economically in our community. Chicanos Por La Causa (CPLC) was founded in the late 1960s by a group of student activists fighting for education equity at Phoenix Union High School.

Our movement grew over the years, expanding our impact into five Southwestern US states: Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas. CPLC is committed to empowering individuals through health & human services, housing, education, economic development, and advocacy.

Areas of Impact

Good health is key to a happy and fulfilling life. We help individuals reach optimal health through affordable health insurance, substance abuse rehabilitation, HIV services, healthy aging programming and housing, mental health services, and emergency resources for survivors of domestic violence and their dependents.

Having a safe, warm place to live in is a basic human right—and we believe that housing stability provides the foundation to build success in other areas of your life. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to housing, so we are bridging this gap through supportive housing services, emergency shelter, housing counseling, utility bill assistance, and access to affordable mortgage loans.

Education provides the foundation for success. We believe in investing in the future, which is why we offer scholarships to local students attending college or universities in Arizona, education services for young children below 5 years old to prepare them for school entry and life, high school education, hands-on educational activities for youth, and adult education, as well as grants for exceptional teachers in our community.

Small businesses are the backbone of our nation’s economy and a symbol of the American dream. We support small businesses, including those owned by women and minorities. We provide business counseling and lending, as well as job training, career planning, and college counseling for individuals in our community, including refugees.

CPLC emerged from an environment of activism, a commitment we still hold to firmly. Today, our advocacy efforts focus on DACA tuition equity, promoting greater civic participation among the Latino community by filling out the US Census and voting in elections, advancing civil and migrant rights, fighting human trafficking, increasing access to healthcare, and taking legislative action to further our Causa.
