Integrated Voter Engagement
UCM works to increase the number of voters that lead to policy changes that affect their communities.  Although UCM focuses on certain issues affecting its surrounding communities, its focus is non-partisan. 
 
UCM just wants people to feel empowered and know that they can make a difference and affect things happening in their communities.
UCM focuses on developing community leaders to work with and in the voting process of each community.

Illinois Issues of Importance

Temporary Visitor Driver's License (TVDL)

Our LatinX Community Organizer, Gabriel Calixto will be heading this issue with downstate residents. This document allows for non-documented immigrants/residents to drive in the state of Illinois. The issue that is being presented is this documentation clearly shows that the individual holding this card is an undocumented resident within the state of Illinois and are experiencing discrimination because of it. Individuals holding this card are wanting the state of Illinois to make this card look like the driver's license of US citizens so that is it isn't as evident that this is a temporary card. No one should be treated different because of their citizenship.
