Who are we?
Dominicanos USA (DUSA) is a 501(c) (3) non-partisan organization founded in 2013, that is committed to the civic, social, and economic integration of Dominican-Americans into the fabric of American society. DUSA strives to ensure that every U.S. citizen is able to freely exercise their civic rights, realize their full potential, and capitalize on all opportunities the United States has to offer. Our contribution to making this vision a reality begins with our work in the DominicanAmerican community
Since its establishment in 2013, DominicanosUSA (“DUSA”) has grounded itself in model citizenship activities focused on the civic, social and economic integration of Dominican-Americans. DUSA represents the first substantial cooperation and investment between citizens of the Dominican Republic (“DR”) and the Dominican-American diaspora- an important recognition of the vital role that a successful and prosperous diaspora represents for the Dominican Republic.
“The levels of cooperation between DUSA and diverse DR-based groups will center around unique communities of interest which will bridge cultural and generational divides common to migratory populations. Our relationship with OIM allows us to scale benefits to a critical mass of Dominican-Americans and mainland Dominicans. I am confident that this alliance will serve as a best-practices model worthy of replication by other immigrant groups.”- Manny Matos, President, DUSA Board of Directors
