¿Oíste? The Massaschusetts Latino Political Organization (501 C4) was founded in 1999 by several Latino activists from accross the state who were concerned about the lack of Latino political representation and participation in Massachusetts. The purpose of ¿Oíste? is to build a solid, educated and participatory electoral base of Latinos, active in civic and electoral processes at the federal, state, and local levels. At the heart of this effort is a deeply held belief in the importance of direct involvement by Latinos in the development of the public programs and policies that shape the context for the future of the community in the Commonwealth. For the past 14 years, ¿Oíste? has been actively involved in several issues of importance to the Latino community of the state, including redistricting, bilingual education, Clean Elections and civic participation.
