One Arizona works to improve the lives of Latinos, young people and single women by building a culture of civic participation.


One Arizona was formed in 2010 as a direct response to the growing disenfranchisement of voters and to the attack on our Latino community in the form of SB1070. Five years now, One Arizona has worked under a successful collaborative format on civic engagement efforts in statewide, gubernatorial, and municipality based election seasons. The table members represent a broad tapestry of 501c3s focused on voter registration, voter engagement, voter mobilization, election protection, and issue advocacy.

This boom in the Latino population, combined with concerted and wide-ranging efforts to increase Latino voter registration and participation, have begun to shape the results the local, state and national elections.


There are over 3.2 million citizens already registered to vote in Arizona but it is crucial we register the remaining 300,000 unregistered but eligible Latinos. 8% of those registered voters are 18-25 yrs old, 17% of those registered voters are Latino voters. Let’s Register to vote and make a difference.


Arizona continues to be ground zero on immigration issues.Arizonians continue fighting back against discriminatory and racist laws and practices. Governor Ducey signed on to the lawsuit against the Presidents executive order to implement DAPA but that hasn't stopped the community and has served as fuel to continue marching, protesting and building power.

Economic justice is a component of social justice. It's a set of moral principles for building economic institutions, the ultimate goal of which is to create an opportunity for each person to create a sufficient material foundation upon which to have a dignified, productive, and creative life beyond economics.

Voting Testimony

"All the devastating issues that our families face because of a broken immigration system makes it our responsibility to vote and encourage our community to vote. We demand for all work to be valued, we demand for affordable quality education, and we demand for our families to be united with every vote from our Communities."

Eduardo Sainz Gurrola, Speaking on Voting

"My family immigrated to the United States with the dream that their children would have a better future. My parents believed that we would have a better opportunity to attain an education in the U.S. Just like the 11 million undocumented families living in the U.S. Immigrating is like starting over, we have to adapt to a different culture, in which fear plays a big part in our lives. Currently, two of my siblings and I are protected under DACA. Obtaining DACA took the burden of fear from our daily lives. Remembering the sacrifice my father made on his journey to the U.S, inspires me and gives me the strength to continue to fight for a relief for those who were left out like my parents and my oldest sibling. Through organizing our community we ensure that Latinos continue stay civically engaged and continue to build power to obtain an immigration reform. "

Education Testimony

"One of the most important things for our students is to become successful in life and to insure they are represented in curriculums in a dignified way. Education saves the lives of our students, which is why we have to keep fighting for better education and less budget cuts."

Maria Chacon, Speaking on Education

"As a community organizer in Phoenix, I see every day the need for economic justice in our schools and neighborhoods. I have student volunteers whose parents work in the service industry and make the current $8.05 Arizona minimum wage and it’s not enough. These companies make more than enough pay their workers a living wage without passing on the cost to the consumer. This movement is not only about raising the minimum wage to $15, but to create a national movement to address income and wealth inequality in the U.S. The fact is that we are the wealthiest country in the world, but there are people who are working full-time who still live in poverty. That is fundamentally wrong and we are taking action to change that. We are strong and we will not stop until every worker has the dignity of a living wage."
