Mobilizing the Latino vote more important than ever


Vida del Valle


The clock is ticking for those who are planning to register to vote and never, at any point in history, has it been more important for Latinos to register, and vote.

That was the driving message at the Latino Community Foundation’s ‘Mobilize the Latino Vote – A Call to Action,’ a presentation held last week that drew a standing room only crowd of about 150 guests at the Impact Hub in San Francisco.

Latinos, who have been growing at exponential rates represent 38.6 percent of the population in California, making it the third largest population of Latinos in the country, just slightly behind Texas and New Mexico.
