Raices is a 501c(3) non profit that was founded by an energetic and dynamic young group of community leaders in 2004.  We envisioned a democratic society that has a genuine interest in the empowerment of its community. Raices could be you if you stem from the community and have a will to organize to make a change in the community. Raices is targeting the areas of the Eastern Coachella Valley, of which include the incorporated areas of Indio, Thermal, Mecca, and Oasis, as well as the city of Coachella.  However, Raices recognizes that space is flexible and that our roots (raices) expand across many geographies.
