New Florida Majority Joins ‘Sister State’ Program Targeting Latinx Vote Against Trump in Battleground States
This week, the New Florida Majority joined Mijente’s national “Fuera Trump” campaign to mobilize Latinos and defeat Trump in November.
The “Sister State” program, housed at FueraTrump.com, will funnel Latino organizing networks into the battleground states of Arizona, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina to make the biggest, and smartest, impact possible. New Florida Majority will work with Mijente and other partner organizations to turn out the vote against Trump in November.
“Florida is a battleground state, where elections are decided by 1% of the vote, and our demographics are constantly changing” says Andrea Mercado, Executive Director for the New Florida Majority. “Every day more Latinos in Florida are realizing that Trump does not represent the idea of the welcoming country of opportunities and dignity that many of our families sought when coming here. A new majority of Black, brown and young voters will decide this election.”
Partner organizations in other states include Living United for Change in Arizona – LUCHA (Arizona), GLAHR Action Network (Georgia), and SONG Power (North Carolina).
“Mijente comes from a legacy of putting our bodies on the line for each other. Even though we can’t yet return to face-to-face campaigning, we’re honoring that legacy with this program. We are driving energy into the battleground states of Arizona, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina, where our people will be fighting it out to the very last vote on election night. This election is a fight we will win – or lose – together. No matter what state we live in, the consequences of another Trump term will hurt all of us. This is how we work together to make sure he loses,” said Mijente’s Political Director Tania Unzueta.
