MLOV is a leading player in the immigrant rights and justice movement in DC. We see advocacy as an opportunity to empower our members to be at the forefront of changing the existing inequities they face on a day to day basis.
MLOV's Digital Literacy program supports community members to build transferable skills that they can utilize in the job-market, when/if starting a small business, to support their children's education, and to seek additional job training/education.
Historically, MLOV has organized a 30-member strong Committee representing the District’s only immigrant-led worker base organizing for the successful implementation of wage theft, paid sick days and other worker rights protections.
For over 12 years, MLOV has trained over 200 immigrant youth of color, originally from dozens of different countries, in community organizing, power building, and political advocacy through our student organizing program.
