Mi Vecino is the fastest-growing voting rights organization in Florida. We’re on a mission to register, educate, and empower Black, Brown, and first-time voters who’ve been historically and systemically marginalized, silenced, or ignored. Co-founders Devon Murphy-Anderson and Alejandro Berrios launched Mi Vecino in early 2021, and have already raised over $400,000 from donors big and small and registered thousands of new minority voters.
Newsweek highlighted our grassroots efforts in a deft report earlier this summer, revealing the immediate challenges posed by SB90 on voters of color. Alex’s perspective on this bill and how he sees it impacting real people as the Field Director for Mi Vecino was also published in the Sun-Sentinel’s opinion section. Mi Vecino was also featured front and center in a story by the Associated Press. It’s been shared by Florida Politics, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, Yahoo News, US News, Palm Beach Post, and others. We’re thrilled to see our work take the national stage; now, millions of readers understand the critical service Mi Vecino provides our communities and our democracy.
