El Centro

Thanks to many of you who have helped with stamps cash, and time to aid El Centro with Get Out The Vote mailers to the Latinx community. The postcards arrived on Monday the 14th and 3,000 were ready to go three days later.


We came together as a  community and hopefully many Latinx voters will register and vote within the next  month.


Thank You!.
