Photo: Voto Latino: Make Sure We Don't Miss a Beat When We Start the New Year
Tomorrow we start a new year—and Voto Latino turns a new page.
The 2012 election made it clear that American demographics are changing. Now, the future of our democracy depends on our ability to get our community plugged in to the political process. And today is our deadline to raise funds as we finalize our budget for 2013.
Our first effort in 2013 will show our elected leaders that we’re not playing around—we’ll demand fixes to our immigration system that are long overdue, and we’ll stand with our entire community to make sure DREAMers have a clear path to becoming American citizens.
This work will be hard, and we need the resources to keep our staff and programs running. Please help with a tax-deductible gift of $5 or more before midnight tonight:
Founded in 2004, Voto Latino is a dynamic and growing non-partisan organization whose civic engagement campaigns have reached an estimated 55 million Latino households nationwide. United by the belief that Latino issues are American issues and American issues are Latino issues, Voto Latino is dedicated to bringing new and diverse voices into the political process by engaging youth, media, technology and celebrities to promote positive change.
Voto Latino has creatively and effectively used celebrity voices and the latest technology to register more than 120,000 young Latino voters, galvanize Latino youth and their families to be counted in the 2010 Census, and mobilize them to speak out and take action on policies impacting their lives.
Thanks for everything you did with us in 2012. Adelante al año nuevo!
