National Leading From the Inside Out Alum
Targeting Latino voters
November 9, 2015, the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA) launched a national campaign aimed at educating Latinos on the importance of voting. The campaign, which will begin one year ahead of the general elections, will be initially implemented in the key states of Florida, Colorado, and Texas.
Latinos, the fastest growing voter block, had a decisive role in the last presidential election and will have an even more important presence in 2016.
LCLAA will mobilize volunteers in key states to talk about the importance of the Latino vote.
"The Latino community is growing rapidly in the U.S., both in population and in our contribution to the economic and social life of this nation. Our voters are eager to find candidates who take them seriously and are ready to invest in the economy, improve our schools and immigration system, and defend our rights," said Hector Sanchez, executive director of LCLAA.
