How did Equis come to be?
We believe the future of American democracy is inextricably linked to our ability to massively increase civic participation among Latinos in this country.
We launched Equis in 2019 to address this challenge.
We set out to create a better understanding of Latinos, innovate new approaches to reach and engage them, and invest in the leadership and infrastructure for long-term change and increased engagement.
Latino, Latinx, Latine, Hispanic?
In an effort to embrace the many cultures and complexities within our community, Equis utilizes at least all four nouns to further articulate the diversity and nuance of the Hispanic diaspora in the United States.
Equis seeks to be a resource that develops actionable recommendations for practitioners seeking to engage the Latinx voter. We work collaboratively with partners and allies, lead with learning and research, and support building programs that address the deep-rooted issues that prevent Hispanic and Latino communities from achieving their full potential and influence.
