On the weekend Donald Trump was visiting Phoenix to campaign for Republican Senate candidate Rep. Martha McSally, young, progressive, Latinx volunteers flooded the city’s suburbs in droves, going door to door, often in bright pink Planned Parenthood T-shirts, canvassing for Kyrsten Sinema.
“It’s like when we had to vote for either Trump or Hillary,” Angelica Romero, 21, the vice president of the Planned Parenthood student activist group on the Arizona State University campus said. “Hillary wasn’t the perfect candidate, there was a lot I disagreed with her on, but are we gonna vote for Trump? No. Are we gonna vote for McSally? No.”
“I have friends that are DACA recipients, people who are politically involved and have advocated for not only themselves, but their communities,” says Isela Blanc, a Democratic member of the Arizona House of Representatives.
