The Importance of the Latinx Vote & the 2020 Elections

Have questions or concerns about this year’s election? Did you know that there are approximately 32 million Latinxs eligible to vote and that we comprise approximately 13.3% of the 2020 electorate in America?  Your vote counts! 

Join us on October 15, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month for a discussion with voting rights experts, Myrna Perez and Jorge Vasquez. We will explore topics such as voter suppression and protection in New Jersey, key information to ensure your access to the ballot, and the importance of the Latinx vote in this year’s election. Myrna Perez is the Director of the Brennan Center’s Voting Rights and Elections Program, and leads the Program’s research, advocacy, and litigation work nationwide. Jorge Vasquez is the Director of the Power and Democracy Program with Advancement Project, and leads the Advancement Project National Office’s voter protection, redistricting, rights restoration, and democracy initiatives throughout the United States. To participate in this free virtual event, register here. Please feel free to share this information with any of your friends, family, and colleagues that may be interested in attending. It will be hosted via Zoom and streamed via Facebook Live.  We look forward to seeing you there!

This event is co-sponsored by Regions II and III of the Hispanic National Bar Association of New Jersey.
