LA stop to focus on uniting communities of color!
Los Angeles, CA – The Latino voter public education campaign, ¡Todos a Votar! (“Let’s Vote”), sponsored by national Latino advocacy groups to register and mobilize Latino voters throughout the country will make a stop in the LA area on Friday.

The groups will work with activists on the ground and online to register Latino voters, inform them of the issues at stake in this election and increase voter turnout.
The LA area tour stop will also focus on uniting communities of color as local leaders join together for a precinct walk, speaking with and registering minority voters who are critical to the electoral success of working family issues in California.
