Annual Report


Dear Friends, The immigrant community is facing unprecedented difficulties. At the current pace, more than 2 million immigrants will have been deported during the first five years of President Obama’s administration. Each day, many hundreds more honest and hardworking men and women are permanently separated from their loved ones. But we can put an end to these injustices. CASA’s successful campaign to uphold the Maryland DREAM Act last year proved the strength of our movement. This was the first pro-immigrant ballot initiative ever to be approved by voters in any state, and together we showed lawmakers across the country that Americans want respect and dignity for immigrant families. CASA is now at the forefront of a national campaign for commonsense immigration reform, leading major marches on the Capitol this past April and October and carrying out more than 50 direct actions. Your help has been crucial to CASA’s successes so far. With your support, we are achieving victories each day—victories like providing English classes to 1,400 immigrants, assisting 500 people in becoming U.S. citizens, and registering 7,500 Latino citizens to vote. But we’ll need your support again in 2014 to achieve our greatest victory yet—a fair immigration process and a pathway for our 11 million aspiring citizens.

“When the history of the immigrant rights movement is written, it will include those who made the tide turn. It was groups like CASA de Maryland and the day laborers they organized…” — New York Times Editorial, April 10, 2013


CASA de Maryland Annual Report 2013

CASA’s April 10th rally brought more than 100,000 people to our nation’s capital in support of immigration reform.

At the Forefront of Immigration Reform There is perhaps no issue more important to immigrant families than reforming our country’s broken immigration system. That is why throughout 2013, CASA mobilized tens of thousands to say “the time is now” for reform. Too many families have been separated, too many hardworking people have been kept in the shadows for too many years. CASA and its partners brought more than 100,000 people to our nation’s capital in April and October of this year to call for a fair immigration process with a clear pathway for aspiring citizens. We carried out over 50 direct actions to draw attention to obstructionist members of Congress who stand in the way of our dreams. We mobilized New Americans to speak directly with lawmakers and share their dreams of attaining U.S. citizenship, and we lifted up the voices of families separated by a broken immigration system. Within only a few months of our campaign’s launch, we won Senate passage of a sweeping immigration reform bill. CASA has been leading the fight for common sense immigration reform for over a decade, and we are now closer than ever before to winning. With just a few House votes away from victory, we know that it will be those who make their voices heard the loudest who will make the difference.

“Turning our economy around means not only putting people to work but also giving workers the training they need to help propel local businesses forward. This is what CASA de Maryland does day in and day out. Groups like CASA represent real hope for our communities.” — Thomas Bozzuto, CEO The Bozzuto Group

At the Forefront of Building Power CASA reaches 40,000 members This year, CASA de Maryland surpassed 40,000 total members, making it the largest immigrant advocacy organization on the entire East Coast. Our members represent more than 30 countries from across Central and South America, the Caribbean, Africa and Asia. CASA became a membership-based organization in 2010 with the goal of building power in the immigrant community and ensuring that the organization responds to the real needs of those it serves. Since then, we have nearly doubled our membership each year. Our members were vital to the success of the Maryland DREAM Act and driver’s license campaigns, and they have played key roles in CASA’s campaign for

immigration reform—speaking to their lawmakers, rallying friends and neighbors, and taking part in direct actions.

What CASA won for its members in 2013: Assisted over 700 members in opening a bank account for the first time and helped more than 350 to file taxes. Recovered over $130,000 in stolen wages for members. Provided health screenings and outreach to over 6,000 members. Trained more than 2,400 members in areas such as building maintenance, computer repair, carpentry, hospitality, and more.

At the Forefront of Transforming Communities CASA’s Langley Park Promise Neighborhood Program

providers, policymakers, and experts to design a program which would transform Langley Park into a model for academic success.

Langley Park, Maryland is a one-of-a-kind community with nearly 20,000 residents from across the globe, speaking over 100 languages. The neighborhood is home to dozens of immigrant-owned shops and small businesses, along with the headquarters of CASA de Maryland. Yet, children in this community face many serious obstacles in school. Dropout rates are high, and proficiency in reading and math is well below national averages. Last year, CASA was one of 10 organizations nationwide to receive a prestigious U.S. Department of Education Promise Neighborhood planning grant to address the challenges facing Langley Park’s kids. CASA led a year-long planning process together with community members, service 79%

When students can grow and achieve their academic and career goals, as adults they will give back to their communities, create businesses of their own, and make Langley Park a thriving and prosperous community for generations to come while helping to end the cycle of poverty. Maryland

Our Langley Park Promise Neighborhood plan includes the expansion of Head Start and pre-K programs, the creation of a first-class bilingual high school, adult learning programs for parents, and many other exciting initiatives. Together, we are working to create a vibrant community which gives students the supports needed to succeed in the classroom and beyond.

“At CASA, I found a family—a family that believed in me, showed me patience, and gave me the courage to reach for my dreams. Because of CASA, I am now a U.S. citizen and I can stand up for my community.” — Liliana G., Member, CASA de Maryland

Donor Spotlight: Sheldon Caplis As the grandson of Russian immigrants, Sheldon Caplis believes he is the product of the opportunity America has given its immigrants. In addition to giving annually to CASA, Sheldon co-hosted a house party to raise awareness and resources for CASA’s work to pass the Maryland DREAM Act. As he puts it, “I know that when I support CASA, I am carrying on my family’s values by helping others to attain the American dream. I am proud to be a part of this wonderful organization.”
