Washington D.C. – Mi Familia Vota is proud to announce that we have surpassed our Latino turnout goals in Georgia, making 1.4 million voter contact attempts ahead of a must-win special election.

We are proud to be partnering and in close coordination with Latino Community Fund (LCF Georgia), the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO), and the Hispanic Federation to get out the vote, register and mobilize Latino voters for these critical special elections.
Hector Sanchez Barba, Mi Familia Vota Executive Director, and CEO released the following statement ahead of this critical special election:
“Mi Familia Vota knows that without the Senate it will be difficult to overturn the many Trump policies that are disastrous for our communities. We are creating political power for Latinos to defend our democracy and help turn the page on the last four years of chaos. Given what we have seen in the last 48 hours with the President asking Georgia officials to “find” votes for him and Senate Republicans seeking to decertify votes for President-Elect Biden the stakes could not be higher. Make no mistake our Democracy is on the line, we must win in Georgia, and Latinos will be a big part of making that happen.”
Mi Familia Vota builds Latino political power as a national civic engagement organization that unites Latino, immigrant, and allied communities to promote social and economic justice through citizenship workshops, voter registration, and voter participation. Mi Familia Vota has operations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, and Texas.
