In The News

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 PoliticsThe Boston GlobeThe Washington PostYahoo NewsUS NewsPalm Beach Postand 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.

The Mission.

Mi Vecino is committed to the empowerment and improvement of  minority communities in Florida. These are OUR communities. We live here, our children live here, our friends and family live here.
We are building organizing power within Florida’s most underserved and disadvantaged communities. This is how we will create our own opportunities and improve our representation. Mi Vecino is a diverse, grassroots organization working hard and smart to empower and educate our neighbors.
Why do we do it? Because we want our independence. We want more than representation, we want GOOD representation. We want equal opportunities, equal access to jobs and equal education.  
Our work is empowering people and connecting resources to the communities that need them most.
