Calling ALL Latinxs! Help Elect the First Black Female Governor in the Nation!

 
April 18th, 2018

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?

How can I contribute to the campaign?

1. ORGANIZE A PHONE BANK IN YOUR HOME

Set aside a few hours a week to call voters in Georgia and convince them to vote for Abrams. Call on your own, or even better, organize a phone bank with a group of friends. We’ll provide a list of numbers, a script, and tips for talking to voters.

2. SPEND A WEEKEND IN GEORGIA

Every day organizers and volunteers travel throughout the state to reach out to Latinx voters. We are knocking on doors, talking to people in the community, and organizing rallies and events. We have been working with community members who are invested in the strategy of mobilizing Stacey Abrams as a way to engage community members and grow independent Latinx power in Georgia. Spend a weekend — or a week — in Georgia, maybe bring a few friends, and help us knock on doors. We could help find a place to stay and might be able to help with travel.

3. JOIN US AT THE "VOTO DE MAYO" NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION

On May 5th, supporters from across the country will gather in Georgia to participate in the largest door knocking and voter outreach operation targeting Latinxs that the state has ever seen! Join us for a rally, time to talk to folks, and even a mariachi dinner. Register: bit.ly/votodemayoreg
