It makes me so mad to to see how American voters are being treated in 2012.
From Florida to Texas, and in Ohio and Alabama — efforts to block the vote and keep voters down are popping up all over the place.
The worst is in Arizona, where the U.S. Supreme Court is set to decide if SB1070, Arizona’s racial profiling law, will stand. It’s a disgusting law, and when the decision is released we can’t just get mad — we have to turn our anger into action, and push back by making sure every voter has a voice in 2012.
Voto Latino has developed a way to register voters efficiently, only spending about $12 in staff time, online outreach, and other resources to register one new voter.
In Arizona, and in other states across America where Latinos could decide elections in November, Voto Latino is mobilizing to get as many voters registered as possible. But we need your help.
This ruling could be a huge challenge, but it’s also one of the biggest opportunities we’ll have to send a powerful message about the power of the American voter.
With the help of supporters like you, America4America and Voto Latino are pushing back against some of the most dangerous threats to the freedom to vote — and we’re making an impact.
More than 25,000 people have signed our petitions demanding that every voter’s voice be heard. But the real test of our strength is coming up, and we have to have the resources we need to meet this challenge head on.
The best way to fight back and prevent voter profiling is to make sure our community is registered to vote in November. Because when we participate and our voices are heard, American voters can’t be stopped!
I need everyone to step up and be a part of this with me. Can you give $12 to register one voter, or $120 to register 10 voters, in 2012?
We’ll keep sending updates on challenges to American voters. Thanks for standing with us.
