MFVEF identifies the following as its major objectives:
"Expanding the electorate through direct, sustainable citizenship, voter registration, census education, GOTV [Get-Out-The-Vote] and issue organizing in key states";
"Forming and supporting key alliances at national, state and local levels to increase civic engagement";
"Providing technical assistance and support to other organizations"; and
"Increasing public support for full civic participation for New Americans."
MFVEF’s Board of Directors is largely comprised of leaders from progressive activist and labor organizations. Cuc Vu, the President/CEO of the MFVEF, serves as the Chief Diversity Officer of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), America's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil-rights group. Before joining HRC, Vu worked for ten years at the AFL-CIO and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). Her ideology centers on progressive identity politics — “the key role that LGBT people of color can play as bridge builders between the LGBT community and people of color communities.”
Eliseo Medina, Cuc Vu’s longtime mentor and partner at the SEIU, serves as MFVEF’s treasurer. A socialist who sat on Barack Obama’s National Latino Advisory Council, Medina is one of the most powerful figures in progressive labor today. He serves as the International Executive Vice President of the SEIU and is well known for his open-borders advocacy.
