The Moment for our Movement 2015 Year in Review

Celebrating CASA’s 30 years of service to the immigrant community


Dear Friends, It’s been thirty years since CASA first opened its doors to the immigrant community, and over the past three decades, more than 100,000 men, women, and families have passed through. Thanks to the support of friends like you and the collective action of many, we’ve effected policy change that has transformed the lives of many, many more. Last year, thanks to CASA’s leadership, two new international high schools focused on the needs of English Language Learners were opened in Prince George’s County. This past fall, 200 ninth graders started high school at schools designed to help them adapt to the U.S., graduate on time, and be prepared to attend college. CASA’s advocacy also helped achieve a historic paid sick leave law in Montgomery County, Maryland this year, which will cover over 100,000 workers who have no such benefits currently. For low-wage workers who previously had to choose between earning a day’s wage or seeing a doctor when sick, this was a tremendous win. In 2016, CASA will take the fight for immigration relief to the Supreme Court. After years of CASA rallying, marching, and sitting in, President Obama granted immigration relief to over 4 million undocumented immigrant men and women in November 2014. However, a Texas judge opted to play politics with the lives of immigrant families and issued an injunction against the order. CASA will be taking a national leadership role in mobilizing thousands of community members to demand that the president’s order be implemented now so that immigrant families can live in peace. You have been an integral part of the movement for immigrant rights and social justice, and we count on your support. This coming year, in addition to fighting for immigration relief, CASA will be mobilizing for fair work week policies and universal health care coverage in Maryland and increasing the minimum wage and expanding driver’s license access in Virginia. With your help, we know we can continue to win these fights and transform the lives of immigrants every day.

Quality Health Care: An Invaluable Asset CASA connected over 10,000 members to affordable health coverage this year Blanca, a 42-year-old single mother and immigrant, came to CASA when she had nowhere else to turn. She had been receiving collections calls demanding she pay over $26,000 in medical debt, an insurmountable figure for someone making just over minimum wage. The state agencies and insurance companies refused to help her. But through perseverance, CASA’s staff was able to get her insurance company to agree to pay one half of the amount owed, and is still working on solutions to get her remaining debt written off. “I don’t know what I would have done if I didn’t find CASA,” said Blanca. Thousands of immigrant families who are uninsured or underinsured like Blanca, are in danger of falling into serious medical debt. For this reason, CASA connects immigrant families to quality, affordable health coverage. For the past two years, CASA has been one of the top Affordable Care Act navigator organizations in the state, helping thousands of low-income individuals enroll in Medicaid or a subsidized private health plan. Last year, CASA helped over 10,000 low-income men, women, and children to apply for free or low-cost health insurance and put more than $3.6 million back in the pockets of community members through savings in their monthly health premiums. CASA also operates a health hotline in English, Spanish, and French, which connects over 4,000 people annually to health care and other vital services. Our health promoters, or promotoras, educated more than 17,000 people last year about how to find health insurance or get screened for diseases like cancer and diabetes, and we also provided over 1,500 medical interpretations. CASA is advocating for a universal health care bill to cover all Marylanders, so that no individual falls into debt simply for seeking the medical treatment they need. Even after passage of the Affordable Care Act, there are still close to half a million Marylanders without health insurance. We will continue to work at the legislative level to offer a systemic solution for the many families who still cannot access quality health care.

Workers’ Rights are Human Rights CASA’s fight for better protections and pay in Maryland and Virginia In 2015, CASA leveraged its model of combining community organizing, grassroots advocacy, and direct services to advance the fight for workers’ rights in Maryland and Virginia. In Montgomery County, Maryland, we won a decisive legislative victory with the Sick and Safe Leave Act, which mandates that employers provide up to seven days of paid sick leave for all workers. When this legislation goes into effect in the coming year, over 100,000 workers will receive paid sick days for the first time. As we move into 2016, the fight continues! At the local level, we are advocating for a $15 minimum wage in Baltimore City and paid sick leave legislation in Prince George’s County. In Virginia, working closely with partners and allies, we are advancing statewide legislation that would increase the current $7.25 minimum wage—a wage far below the cost of living in the state to $15 as well. In Maryland, we are building on the Fair Work Week legislative campaign that we launched earlier this year, educating members of the state legislature on the impact that unjust scheduling practices have on the lives of low-wage retail workers. Today, tens of thousands of low-wage workers receive their work schedules with only a few days’ notice, making the scheduling of childcare, doctor’s appointments, and second jobs a constant challenge. The Fair Work Week bill would ensure that workers are given three weeks’ notice of the days and times they are required to work by their employers. In addition, over the course of 2015, CASA’s legal team recovered more than $114,000 in unpaid wages for immigrant workers, and our workforce development program educated over 400 workers about their rights on the job. We will continue to provide these and other services, while simultaneously training workers to organize for change in their workplaces and communities.

Connecting our Communities, Standing In Solidarity Multicultural organizing for change in Baltimore In April 2015, Freddie Gray was killed while in police custody, and Baltimore erupted in protest. In the four years preceding Gray’s murder, the city had faced over a hundred lawsuits regarding police misconduct, resulting in some $5.7 million in settlements.1 During this time, as Baltimore’s majority African American community remained plagued by economic insecurity and violence, tensions with the city’s newly expanding immigrant population began to bubble as well, inflamed by the prevalent conditions of systemic poverty and institutional racism. Beginning in the fall of 2014, CASA embarked on a partnership with the Department of Justice and one local high school to implement programming related to leadership development, community organizing, and purposeful cross-racial community building, helping students, staff, and even school police to work towards an improved school climate. We held grassroots-led antiracism and civil disobedience trainings in the community, bringing together Latino and African American members of racially diverse neighborhoods. And, in the wake of Freddie Gray’s death, we led the efforts to build a coalition of over thirty organizations, forming the Campaign for Justice, Safety, and Jobs, and advocating for statewide law enforcement policies that uphold equal justice, transparency, and accountability.

As our Baltimore membership grows, we look forward to establishing a new Baltimore Welcome Center in the McElderry Park neighborhood, where the Latino population has grown from less than 5% to over 20% in the last ten years. Opening a new center will significantly expand CASA’s capacity to provide services and support to the city’s immigrant and African American residents. The new center will also serve as a hub for multiracial communities, particularly youth, to come together to organize for social change.

CASA trained over

200 youth in civil disobedience in the days following the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore

Over the course of the year, we also continued to provide employment placement and workforce development services, legal and social services, and citizenship support at our Baltimore center, and we successfully completed the second year of our Mi Espacio Program, an afterschool and summer leadership and enrichment program for Latino high school students in Baltimore City. 1

Announcing CASA’s first Citizenship Center Providing citizenship assistance, tax prep, financial counseling and more to hundreds each year This year, CASA opened its first-ever Citizenship Center in Rockville, Maryland. In the Washington, D.C. metro area, there are over 300,000 Legal Permanent Resident immigrants who are eligible to become U.S. citizens. Almost 80,000—more than a quarter—live in Montgomery County. Through a unique partnership with the State of Maryland, CASA hosts 13 AmeriCorps members, located at this center and throughout the state, to help Legal Permanent Residents to become citizens and improve their financial well-being. CASA’s new center offers citizenship application assistance, citizenship classes, and a micro-loan program to help members afford the high cost of applying for citizenship. Last year, more than 150 immigrants received loans, and 100% repaid their loans on time. Members who received a loan reported an average increase of 15 points on their credit score.

community (through tax refunds, taxes government collected, tax preparation fees saved and the value of volunteer hours). More than 900 members opened a bank account with the help of CASA and local banking partners last year. One beneficiary of CASA’s citizenship programs is Ramon. Ramon immigrated from El Salvador when he was 21. He wanted to make a better life for his family, so he came to the U.S. in search of work, but had to leave his children back home. This year, he came to CASA for help applying for citizenship, so that he could petition to bring his children to the U.S. and reunite after more than 26 years. Ramon worked in construction for over two decades, but receiving citizenship allowed him to work on a federal contract, and nearly double his salary. Achieving U.S. citizenship not only improved Ramon’s financial status, it also helped bring his family back together.

CASA’s financial literacy program also includes tax preparation, financial counseling, and banking access. In 2015, CASA helped over 650 people file a tax return and helped earn over half a million dollars in tax refunds for community members. In total, the program added over $900,000 in value to the

Donor Profile

Jeff Meetre “Supporting CASA gives me a chance to offer assistance to the very deserving people who come to its offices.” A D.C.-area native and retired official at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Jeff Meetre has been a generous supporter of CASA since 2011. Jeff first came to CASA because he wanted to find a place where he could give back and improve his Spanish skills at the same time. He quickly saw how great the needs of the immigrant community were and the importance of supporting CASA’s work. Since then he has donated each month, in addition to volunteering just about every day with CASA’s ESOL program. His pledge was made easier for him because of CASA’s participation in the Community Investment Tax Credit program, available to all Maryland residents giving $500 and above annually. CASA sends its deepest thanks to Jeff and to the more than 1,000 donors and volunteers who make this work possible each day.
