PROTECTING FAMILIES AND THEIR FUTURE
While we focus on today’s immigrants' struggles, we strive for solutions that will increase
educational success and open up career opportunities for future generations of immigrant youth.
COVID-19 FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
As we navigate the uncertainty of the COVID-19 crisis, one thing holds true now more than ever: we are all in this together.
At COSPU, family is everything; with our supporters help, and in partnership with the Harrisonburg and Shenandoah Valley TPS committee, we are happy to announce our COVID-19 emergency fund to help those experiencing financial hardship during this crisis.
T.P.S. TO PERMANENT RESIDENCY
Since our first day fighting for immigrants' rights, their equality, our commitment to advocating to protect family unity has become our central focus. When we learned about the struggle T.P.S. holders are currently facing, our political advocacy team came together and ready to make a difference.
Today, we proudly sponsor our local T.P.S. alliance committee, and we fight shoulder to shoulder with them for their permanent residence.
COSPU Youth Leadership Mentoring Program is designed to build and develop the self-confidence, life, and leadership skills of sons and daughters of immigrants.
Through interactive learning, discussions, presentations, panels, workshops, and advocacy field trips, we are mentoring future community leaders and social organizers. Once completing the program, they will successfully represent and uplift immigrant families inherit worth and dignity.
CULTURAL AND TRADITIONS
We, Immigrants, have brought diverse and rich traditions with us. For us, our culture and celebrating with our loved ones is critical to preserve our heritage. We at COSPU understand how important it is to share our food, our music, our culture, and our traditions with others. By hosting the Hispanic Festival, our community becomes stronger, more inclusive, and more diverse. Our events and festivals help us bring everyone together for a better tomorrow.
COSPU FOLKLORE DANCE
With this project, we are creating a space for young people to practice art and, at the same time, learn about their culture and that of others; the group is a representation of the diversity that our community represents beyond a place where their dresses they wave with passion, it is a space where we are training community leaders who will represent us in the future, the project includes popular education workshops where young people will gain skills such as improving their self-esteem, advocacy, fundraising, community leadership, how to improve their intrafamily communication In the coming months we will have several workshops with the young people and their fathers and mothers and the idea is to get closer and strengthen their family relationship and together expand our knowledge of their culture and what makes them who they are.
