What is Living United for Change in Arizona? 

Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA) is an organization of changemakers fighting for social, racial, and economic transformation. They are committed to human dignity, inclusion, equity, and collective growth. They envision a future where state legislative policies and budgets are reflective of community needs.

Why do we think this project is important? 

Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA) organizes low- and moderate-income and minority families to take action on the issues most important to them and advance the cause of social and economic justice for all. LUCHA incorporates leadership development with grassroots issue-based campaigns, advocacy and civic engagement, to create an Arizona in which every resident has an equal voice in determining the policies and shaping the decision-making bodies that will govern our communal life.

How is Democracy Fund Voice supporting Living United for Change in Arizona?
