SIREN’s mission is to empower low-income immigrants and refugees in Santa Clara County through community education and organizing, leadership development, policy advocacy and naturalization services. We believe that all people regardless of legal status or nationality are entitled to essential services, human dignity, basic rights and protections, and access to full participation in society.
October 15, 2015, marked the end of Hispanic Heritage Month. Throughout the month, SIREN celebrated the heritage, culture, accomplishments and progress of Latinos in our community by honoring local Hispanic Heritage Heroes. Our honorees showcased the successful progress we have made on a variety of issues and industries including Latinos in elected office, organizers and advocates creating positive change, and leaders improving educational achievement among Latino students.
