Voto Latino is unveiling RepUrLetters.org to launch a contest to engage Latino Greek life in Voto Latino’s civic engagement efforts across the country. Rep Ur Letters is a multimedia campaign that will focus on leveraging the passion, dedication, and philanthropic efforts of Greek organizations nationwide. Voto Latino will team up with sororities and fraternities to tie voter registration into their community service projects and engage their college communities across the nation to increase participation in the political process. RepUrLetters.org will serve as a resource for participating organizations and provide an opportunity to sign up for updates, events, webinars, downloadable materials, and more.
Confirmed national organizations include:
- Alpha Rho Lambda Sorority, Inc.
- Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha, Inc.
- Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc.
- La Unidad Latina Lambda Upsilon Lambda,
- Phi Iota Alpha Fraternity, Inc.,
- Sigma Lambda Upsilon/Señoritas Latinas Unidas Sorority, Inc.,
- Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity
These and other fraternities and sororities will compete by integrating voter registration drives into their existing events as well as participating in Voto Latino field efforts across the country. The organization that registers the highest number of eligible voters will win the chance to have a Voto Latino celebrity appear at an upcoming national event.
Voto Latino is a next-generation, constituency based organization that empowers American Latinos to claim a better future by participating at the political process.
