Conservation

The goal of our Conservation Program is to help diversify the outdoors by engaging our community members to advocate for the protection of public lands and increasing the educational and recreational opportunities for Latinx community members in the Coachella Valley.

Civic Participation

The goal of these programs is to strengthen the community and their participation in the various political processes and to ensure that the immigrant community has a voice in decision-making at the state and federal levels in the United States and Mexico.

Enroll LA

The Enroll LA campaign is a comprehensive LA Countywide engagement initiative that seeks to ensure eligible families and individuals access CalFresh and other public benefits they are eligible to receive. Families will also be encouraged to file their taxes to access the available tax credits. We also offer free enrollment and tax preparation services.

Immigrants Are Los Angeles

The Immigrants Are Los Angeles campaign is a diverse initiative to build a just future for all. Even though immigrants help make this County the metropolis it is today, they have not been prioritized during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the American Rescue Plan, we have a historic opportunity to allocate new resources to our communities.

Immigrant Integration

Since 2016, COFEM has maintained accreditation before the Department of Justice to provide immigration services to the immigrant community. Our efforts focus on helping our community to become citizens and renewal of green cards as well as work permits for DACA recipients.

Water Quality

In collaboration with Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), we are informing the community about the health, environmental, and financial benefits of drinking L.A.’s high-quality tap water. We are also informing the community of the free resources the department provides.
