Latinos for Democracy
 

Our Mission:

Mobilize Latino Voters in Georgia.

Georgia has the fastest growing Latino community in the country. Our contributions to the social and economic fabric of the state are pivotal. This critical presence must be reflected in electoral participation.

We vote for Mayors! We vote for City Councils!

Mayors serve for 4 years and are the executive branch of the city. City council members serve 2 to 4 years and are the legislative branch.

Why are mayors important?

They run the city and make every day decisions. Mayors pick leaders for departments like the offices of Immigrant, Cultural and Community affairs. They spend approved budgets.

Why IS CITY COUNCIL important?

They approve budgets and laws. They serve on committees and are active community representatives in their districts. They’re more easily accessible compared to mayors.

Our Impact

Latinos in Georgia can significantly influence policy in the state if turning out to vote. According to a GALEO report, we are close to represent 4% of the total electorate in the state and growing.

87% of all Latinos under 18 years old in Georgia ARE AMERICAN CITIZENS. In the last midterm elections in 2018, Millennial Latinx turned out at 700% compared to the previous midterm. The community at-large turned out at 400$

It is our time to use our voice and vote to champion policies that facilitate opportunities for our families, students and entrepreneurs to grow and continue contributing to the state.
