Civic Engagement

Make Your Voice Heard

We promote civic participation and neighborhood involvement.

Chhaya registers eligible voters, holds candidate forums, and partners with other organizations to ensure South Asian and Indo-Caribbean voices are heard at the local and national level.

We organize direct actions and mobilize community members to engage with their local government, regardless of their citizenship status or voter eligibility, through community board meetings, city council hearings, the land use review process, and participatory budgeting.

To ensure participation in the 2020 Census, Chhaya has carried out awareness campaigns, workshops, and amid COVID-19 we’ve reached out to more than 10,000 constituents via phone banking.

Completing the 2020 Census is essential to build power in our communities. Make your voice heard.
