Local town hall meetings enable us citizens to speak with members of congress who represent us.
Politicians are addicted to elections. They count visits, letters, calls, emails, and texts.
Speaking out at a Town Hall meeting in your area is a powerful way to let your members of congress know what you think is important.
You do not need to be an expert. You just need to have an opinion.
Are immigration, health care, and taxes important to you? Speak up!!!
If you are not a citizen, you can still send your children to speak. If they are citizens, they are or will be able to vote. Let’s teach our children to participate in U.S. government.
And if you are not a citizen, you can still make an impact by learning how the system works and educating friends and family in regions where the Latin vote can make a difference!
