In 2014, the SouthWest Organizing Project will register young Latinos in the Albuquerque metro area to vote. The Nuestra Elección campaign will engage, educate and empower Albuquerque’s Latino youth to uplift their voices and impact our government. By registering our Latino, Hispano and Chicano youth to vote, we can build an electorate that better represents our communities and our social justice values.
Next week, our canvass team will start hitting the streets to register voters. SWOP youth will also be visiting schools around Albuquerque to register young people and open discussions around civic engagement, while another team of canvassers will be registering people around the city.
Keep an eye out for our voter registration agents- Nuestra Elección starts now!
