We invite you to join us at P.A.S.O.’s Annual Dinner Celebration “Our Families, Our Future”  as we commemorate six years of grassroots leadership empowerment and  celebrate the  work and victories of P.A.S.O. members that have made an impact locally and statewide in the lives of thousands of community members while building a powerful immigrant and grassroots voice in the Suburbs.

We are also honored to be joined by Commisioner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia as keynote speaker. Commissioner Garcia championed and spearheaded the Cook County ICE Detainer Ordinance which ensured the separation of local police and ICE in Cook County.

Garcia to push for the passage of this important policy.

Message from Eduardo Munoz, Interim Director/ Mensaje de Eduardo Munoz

Dear friends and colleagues,

As the new interim executive director of P.A.S.O., I am excited to continue my commitment to this organization. I have been involved with P.A.S.O. since it was founded, working closely with students and high school personnel to organize for the DREAM Act. In 2010 I joined P.A.S.O. as a fellow, working with local parishes and community partners to establish our citizenship program. I then joined the board in 2012.

Over the years, I have seen and experienced first-hand P.A.S.O.’s victories at the local and state level.  The dedication, vision and power of P.A.S.O. leaders have made an impact in the lives of thousands of people, including my own. As part of P.A.S.O.’s board, I have been committed to ensuring we fulfill P.A.S.O’s mission, vision and goals and will continue this as interim director through the executive director succession and search.

Message from Yesenia Sanchez, founding director / Mensaje de Yesenia Sanchez


With excitement, I share this fall I embark in a new journey. I will be transitioning from P.A.S.O. to begin the LAS graduate program in International Migration at the University of California in San Diego to continue my work for immigrant justice through a transnational focus.

It has been an honor to lead P.A.S.O. these past six years and work with a courageous, talented and committed team of staff, leaders, volunteers and board. I have been transformed and grounded by the people I’ve walked with and the impact of our collective work and strategic vision.
