In the upcoming midterm elections across the country, our communities have an opportunity we can’t afford to lose. Latinx voters have the power to help kick out Trump’s allies and replace them with the progressive leaders our communities deserve.
We believe that this is what can happen in Georgia where this May 22nd Democrats will be selecting who will run for Governor in the general election. One of the candidates is Stacey Abrams, who could be the first Black woman to be Governor in the history of the United States. This is an important opportunity where we want Latinxs to be on the right side of history and mobilize to vote during the primary and the general election for Stacey Abrams.
It is also a chance for Latinxs to fight in defense of our families. Across Georgia, Latinxs and immigrants have long been targets of racist policies that break apart families and criminalize communities. Abrams has a record of standing up for immigrant rights, believes that safe communities mean more investment in resources not criminalization, and builds her base on the power of communities of color.
Abrams is the kind of candidate Latinxs need to show up for. That is why Mijente launched Gente4Abrams, the first political campaign targeting Latinx voters in the state of Georgia.
And we need your help to do it.
Mijente is calling on Latinxs from across the nation to help mobilize Latinx voters in Georgia. You can make a significant impact from home or by joining us for a few days out in Georgia. Check out the list below for 4 ways you can help Abrams win the Latinx vote.
The midterm elections will show where this nation stands on defending our communities against Trump’s white supremacist agenda. Where will you stand?
