Civic Engagement

2011

Athena’s vision for the city of El Paso is to be a place that fosters informed and active communities that will work together to build power and develop leaders in order to ensure that no voices are muted and no communities are marginalized or underrepresented. To that end, Athena is working to build a broadbased coalition of progressive organizations to register, educate, and mobilize voters in the 2012 election. It is her goal that the coalition become a place for like-minded organizations to to achieve common goals, share and receive useful skills and information, and to develop new leaders to carry this work forward.
