The Mi Familia Vota Civic Participation Campaign is one of the organizations in Colorado that is seeking to mobilize the Latino Vote.

We also ventured out into the suburbs in Denver and joined volunteer canvassers, Jackie and Wendy, and knocked on people’s doors. Listen to their take on the efforts including a voter’s personal motivation for voting in the upcoming November elections.
