MFV Invites Latino Community to Townhall Exploring 2020 Elections
“The Power of Your Vote” prioritizes the issues driving Latino voters to the polls
Houston, Texas – Mi Familia Vota (MFV) will participate in the Power of Your Vote, a bilingual townhall, organized by NPR’s 1A, Houston Public Media, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, focused on Latinos and the 2020 election.
The Houston community is invited to discuss what Latinos want from the upcoming presidential elections and their motivations for voting. Angelica Razo, MFV’s Houston coordinator, noted, “Our ground teams are working steadily to increase civic participation and voter turnout among Latinos in key states across the country, including Texas. This community event is a way to engage our community by providing a space for our youth, families, and all Houston residents to come together and voice their concerns about the issues we face. The high midterm election turnout numbers reflect that Latinos are more engaged than ever and we need to invest in our community year-round to keep up our momentum. Our votes hold true power and we’re making sure that Latinos demonstrate their force in 2020.” Razo will be a panelist for the event.
