Mission & Vision

Mission Statement

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.


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.

Our Work

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.


Our work was made possible with the financial support of various institutions who recognize the importance of empowering the Dominican-American community in New York, Rhode island and across the nation.

Be a part of our movement! We have been able to accomplish plenty with help from regular people in the community. Just imagine what we could accomplish if you made a contribution today or volunteered your time to our cause. Your contribution can help to register a new voter, educate them about the civic process, mobilize them to vote, or even naturalize a new citizen. Every contribution helps to strengthen our community and our democracy!
