The Latino Community Foundation has joined forces with NextGen California and Latin Life to register a record number of Latinos for the 2016 Election. Join us!
Yo Voy a Votar ¿Y Tú? (I Will Vote. And You?) is a multi-media campaign that seeks to amplify the power of the Latino vote in this election.
Yo Voy a Votar ¿Y Tú? will kick off voter registration drives at four popular concerts in targeted Latino communities. LCF has partnered with three grassroots Latino organizations (SIREN, Fathers and Families of San Joaquin, and Mi Familia Vota) to recruit, train and deploy 100 bilingual canvassers to register Latino voters at four popular concerts that reach 15,000 people each. Our goal is to outreach to 1M Latinos and to register 10,000 Latinos to vote.
The concert outreach series provides a unique and direct opportunity for bilingual Latinos to activate their own community. Using the power of social media, LCF will also engage Latinos in sharing their reasons for why they plan to vote. Long term, LCF’s goal is to build a culture of civic engagement among Latinos, ensuring that Latinos play a vital role in our democracy.

“Civic participation is the cornerstone of any democracy,” says Jacqueline Martinez Garcel, CEO of the Latino Community Foundation, “Latinos have the opportunity—and some would say the responsibility—as the largest Latino voting bloc in California to lead the way.”
