Mixteco Indigena Community Organizing Project

about

Mixteco/Indigena Community Organizing Project (MICOP) was founded in 2001 to address the pressing concerns of Ventura County's most vulnerable and marginalized residents: indigenous farm workers from the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. Speaking only the Mixteco language, Mixtecs are subject to discrimination and exploitation at work, in the marketplace, and in housing. MICOP is comprised of English-, Spanish-, and Mixteco-speaking people who have come together to empower and help improve the health and well being of indigenous Oaxacans in Ventura County. We mentor leaders, train promotores de salud, or healthcare outreach workers, and work to organize local Mixtecs to develop a collective voice for advocacy and action. Members of the Mixtec community serve on our Board of Directors and take an active role in all of our activities.
