SIREN Empowers New Voters

Edwin and Lezba are long time legal permanent residents who came to SIREN's free, monthly Citizenship Legal Clinic for naturalization services. They had put off applying for naturalization because they were nervous about the administration and possible consequences of failing the examination. After coming to SIREN’s Legal Clinic, they spoke with one of SIREN's Attorneys who eased their fears about applying and helped them to fill out the applications.

In April of this year, Edwin and Lezba returned to SIREN with their naturalization certificates in hand. Edwin, especially proud, indicated that he had answered all of the questions on his citizenship exam correctly. They both plan on voting in the upcoming elections and are very happy to be newly minted US citizens.

We are so proud of Edwin and Lezba for overcoming their fears and becoming empowered US citizens! For more information about our citizenship programs and services, visit us here.

Join Us for our "Votar Para Ganar" Campaign Launch


Over the last decade, SIREN has registered over 15,000 voters and contacted 200,000 voters to cultivate a voting base of immigrant and youth voters in Northern California and the Central Valley to help shift the political landscape in our state and region.

Please join us tomorrow  Thursday September 6 at 11am to celebrate the launch of our Fall voter engagement campaign "Votar Para Ganar" at the SIREN office located at 1415 Koll Cir. Suite 108, San Jose, 95112.

Our campaign aims to register immigrant and youth voters and contact over 30,000 immigrant and youth voters through phone banking, text, and door knocking in Northern California and the Central Valley for the November elections.

We will have a program of great speakers, including those who will be voting in their first election, those who voted for their first time in June, and those who can't vote but will be calling on voters to be their voice at the polls. 

Please come stand with us and create community power. All are welcome to attend!

The fight for immigrant rights continues to be an uphill battle as both Congress refuses to act and the current administration is relentless in its efforts to deport and oppress the communities we serve. Despite the challenges we face, over the last few weeks the rise in youth activism across the country has shown us that our youth has tremendous power and can be the drivers of change.
