Help Strengthen Our Democracy

Do you know that less than 3 out of 10 voters in San Diego voted in the last election?

Our democracy is not functional when less than half of all voters participate in our elections. We need to mobilize more people to vote in San Diego.

 Mobilize with us by donating $20 or more today.

Alliance San Diego has a proven track record of mobilizing infrequent voters to the polls. In the June election we doubled the turnout rate of the infrequent voters we reached. But we need to reach more voters.

With a $20 donation you can help us turn out one voter.

When Alliance San Diego reaches out to voters, we strengthen our democracy by motivating people to vote on the issues that affect us all. The more voters we mobilize, the stronger our democracy becomes.

Help strengthen our democracy by making a secure online donation now.

Award-Winning Border Film to Be Aired Nationwide

Univision will be airing Who is Dayani Cristal? on September 6, 2014 at 6 PM/ 5 PM Central and on Fusion at 8 PM/7 Central on September 7 and 8 (check local listings) nationwide. The Southern Border Communities Coalition is happy to partner with the the social impact team behind the Sundance award-winning film, “Who is Dayani Cristal?

Who is Dayani Cristal?” is an intimate examination of the journey of one migrant who perished in the Arizona desert, far from his native Honduras, with no real identification but a name tattooed over his heart. The film was produced by Marc Silver and features Gael García Bernal and weaves together real-life attempts to identify the migrant’s body with Bernal’s retracing of the journey he would have most likely taken through the “corridor del muerte” to reach the U.S. with hopes of improving the lives of his family.

Migrant deaths continue to be a tragic reality for border communities and should weigh on the consciousness of our society.
