DUSA has a strong commitment to enhancing the civic participation of Dominican-Americans by increasing their engagement in the political process. Our efforts to increase civic engagement include voter registration, voter mobilization, helping our community naturalize as US Citizens, and many more activities.
Putting a spotlight on the contributions Dominican-Americans make every day to the US, and empowering our young future leaders. Our community is now over 1.8 million strong nationwide, and we aim to engage every one of them.
We seek to connect these immigrant communities with the tools and resources necessary to realize their full potential and take full advantage of the opportunities this country has to offer.
MISSION & VISION
Empowering the Dominican community and giving Dominicans a voice through encouraging civic, social, and economic engagement.
The Change We Desire
That every person living in the U.S can freely exercise their civic rights, realize their full potential, and capitalize on opportunities this country has to offer. Our contribution to making this vision a reality begins with our work in the Dominican-American community.
Jamily & Katie Duarte, two sisters who volunteered at our recent citizenship workshop in Brooklyn, discuss why DUSA’s work and citizenship matter.
PIONEERING DATA ANALYTICS
DUSA is committed to adding to the body of knowledge and research that filters down to the level of national and sub-national ethnicities such as Dominican-Americans
Together with Catalist, a leading analytics research firm, DUSA developed the first ever Dominican Model, a statistical model created to identify whether or not someone is of Dominican origin. This model and the work DUSA did with it was the basis for dozens of other ethnicity data models.
This data provides DUSA with a unique ability to connect our community with a network of social, legal, and financial service providers and links Dominicans in the U.S. with the tools and information they need to become fully active and integrated into the fabric of our country.
As DUSA grew, so did its understanding and knowledge of how to address challenges facing Dominican-Americans and other immigrant communities in the civic space. Our work directly supports DUSA’s cause and mission.
DUSA’s work focuses on addressing those core barriers that many face. This effort includes helping individuals secure citizenship, navigate the civic and political process, and realize their economic goals.
