CIRC’s broad range of focus areas allows the organization to support and collaborate with community members with a wide variety needs and circumstances. For example, consider the following fictional timeline of the life of “Elena”:
At fourteen months old...
Elena’s family brings her to the US. CIRC assists her family in accessing resources and supports to get them settled in.
At eighteen years old...
Elena decides to apply for DACA. CIRC’s legal services department partners with local lawyers to host an application workshop and support her throughout the process.
At twenty one years old...
Elena gets her license! She’s able to do this because, thanks to CIRC and the iDrive coalition’s organizing and policy work, the DMV in Elena’s town begins to offer driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants and DACA recipients through the SB-251 program.
At twenty five yeas old...
Elena is a passionate community advocate. She establishes an organization that supports single immigrant mothers. Elena’s organization becomes a member of the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition, and the coalition’s trainings on press communications and fundraising help Elena’s organization build its capacity.
Throughout the years...
Despite the progress being made, when Elena has children even they struggle with facing anti-immigrant sentiments and feeling unwelcome. Her organization takes part in CIRC’s coalition and partnership building efforts across the state to change the popular narrative on immigrants for years to come!
