Phoenix, Ariz.— The goal of a summit at Carl Hayden High School in Phoenix Monday was to educate and engage the community in the voting process.
Raquel Teran is state director for Mi Familia Vota, one of the groups in the coalition.
“We’re committed to making sure Latinos are part of the process and we are going to be knocking on doors, making phone calls, mailing,” Teran said.
Teran said it’s important to engage Latinos in the decision-making process and to make them aware of how easy it is to vote.
“Our goal is to make sure that it’s easy for our communities to come out and vote in every single election,” Teran said.
Teran emphasizes that early voting is a great way to get people in Arizona to vote.
The one-day summit at Carl Hayden High School used panels and workshops to teach about current issues and about the voting process.
