The Arizona Center for Empowerment (ACE) is a left-leaning worker organizing and advocacy organization. Focused on Arizona’s Latino immigrant communities, its priorities include immigration, health care, income equality, and public education.
The group is a sister organization to Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA), a worker center and lobbying nonprofit that pushes to radically liberalize the immigration and criminal justice systems and expand the role of labor unions in Arizona’s economy. 
In 2018, ACE joined a coalition of Arizona-based community groups called One Arizona to register voters before the midterm elections that year.  Again in 2020, ACE partnered with One Arizona and launched a new campaign to register 250,000 people to vote in the November elections and to ensure full participation in the 2020 U.S. Census. 
After President Donald Trump proposed ending the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2018, ACE launched a fundraising drive titled “Sponsor a Dream” to raise money to cover the cost of DACA renewal applications. 
ACE opposed Arizona SB 1070, the Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act, a law which seeks to deter illegal immigration. 
ACE has also opposed legislation that would have strengthened Arizona’s election security. 
Ayensa Millan is a former president of ACE.  Millan is the Founder and CEO of the Arizona-based Cima Law Group which specializes in immigration law. Millan is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), a dues- and membership-supported organization for lawyers that promotes the practice of immigration law, liberalized immigration, and advancing the policy argument that immigrants improve the U.S. economy. She is also the Chair of the Immigration Section of the Arizona State Bar. 
Raquel Teran currently sits as an ACE board member and is the organization’s former director.  Teran, a Democrat, was elected to the Arizona House of Representatives in 2018 and is a vocal advocate for immigrant rights. 
In 2017, the New Venture Fund, a funding and fiscal sponsorship nonprofit that makes grants to left-of-center advocacy and organizing projects, gave ACE $15,000. 
In July 2020, it was announced that the Sandler Foundation would be donating $200 million to “racial justice groups” in response to the 2020 Black Lives Matter Protests, and Arizona Center for Empowerment was one of the eight grantees named. The funds will help recipients advocate for left-wing policies in battleground states and create long-term constituencies that support these issues.
