Show love for your RGV community by getting out the vote this Saturday! We’ll be talking to San Juan voters about the issues that are important to them and asking their support for issues important to colonia residents.
Help us spread the GOTV love this Saturday any time from 10am to 3pm. Volunteer an hour, two hours or all day–however much time you can share is appreciated. We’ll have free pizza at noon for the volunteers who help from 10am to 12pm. Learn how to volunteer on our Facebook page: http://on.fb.me/1dkDKJ0Read more »
