Have you voted yet? Tomorrow, Tuesday March 4th, is your last chance to vote!
At least two County races are likely to come down to just five hundred to one thousand voters who decide who wins and who loses their bid in the March 4th primary elections. Close to fifteen hundred voters have joined the Mi Voto Mi Voz campaign and declared their support for colonias issues. Due to the 500-1000 likely winning margin for these races, the Mi Voto Mi Voz campaign voters can tip the election towards any candidate that supports colonia issues. When these voters cast their vote for colonias this March 4th, county elected officials and candidates for county positions will no doubt take note.Read more »
Your design could be on the 11th annual Cesar Chavez March t-shirt! We’re looking to our creative supporters to help design this year’s shirt. Our committee of LUPE members organizing the march want to see your design ideas inspired by the legacy of Cesar Chavez.
This year’s theme is “Reforma Migratoria Justa” and the committee chose Cesar’s quote, “Somos Hijo@s de una Revolución Pidiendo Justicia” as this year’s quote. The committee wants to see your designs inspired by this year’s theme and quote and will choose one design to be used for the t-shirt, which we give out free to the first 500 marchers.Read more »
