Lori Gama replied to the topic What Do You Think of VotoLatino’s “Be Counted” Census 2010 Website? in the forum GobiernoLoop: Hispanic Engagement Group 9 years, 11 months ago
It’s a great website because its design is appealing; the site is user-friendly; and it gets you involved if you choose to take the pledge. If you do take the pledge, you get rewarded with 25 free songs you download via iTunes. Actress Rosario Dawson (one of my favorites) is the founder of Voto Latino, which is a non-profit, non-partisan organization founded in 2004, under the leadership of Executive Director Maria-Teresa Kumar. According to their website: “Voto Latino seeks to maximize American Latino youth civic involvement by generating voter turnout and increasing political involvement among this group. Voto Latino’s work ranges from grassroots voter registration drives to multimedia pop culture awareness campaigns that serve one goal: to enfranchise young Latinos in American society.”
My local school district is badly in need of funding and that is my main concern with getting people counted in Census.
What is your main concern with getting people counted in the 2010 Census?
