Our mission is to empower Dominican Americans by ensuring they exercise their civic rights.

Civic Engagement

Our project began with a focus on registering our community to vote and mobilizing them to go out and vote.

Why It All Began

Today, 2 million people of Dominican descent call the U.S. home. Latinxs of Dominican ancestry are also one of the fastest growing communities in the nation, representing the fifth largest Latinx group in the U.S. The Dominican presence here is significant and influential as we continue to grow. However, Dominicans are still working to overcome the many barriers our community faces.

DUSA was founded four years ago as a response to the growing needs of Dominican immigrants and citizens of Dominican descent. The organization began its journey at Hostos Community College in 2014. We are now headquartered in the South Bronx of New York City, an area with one of the highest concentrations of Dominicans.
