CASA has been advocating for legislative change in the Virginia General Assembly since 2014. Throughout that time CASA has advocated and created change within Virginia. In 2020, the organization successfully achieved driving privileges for all, instate tuition for all, increased funding for English-language learners students, and increased the minimum wage. This was all done through an organized community effort and self-advocacy alongside CASA. As the largest immigrant and Latino advocacy organization, CASA continues pushing for justice, serving as a shining example of iconic Virginian Ella Baker: “Give light and people will find the way.”
