Su VOTO Es Su Voz!


Also, we have a lot of efforts in local elections because they are usually low turn out for voters and the #GALatinoVote can make a big difference.  Please help us reach out to Latino voters to make sure we do turn out in force and make an impact!  Please see below how you can help!  Please contact if you have further questions about volunteering today, tomorrow or in general.


There is a lot going on and you need to stay engaged.  Please stay up to date with us on for the latest actions and information.

Please join our advocacy efforts by joining our texting campaign.  The image to the right is our latest way to engage with our supporters in a timely manner and make our efforts more effective.  Please stay engaged by texting the word IMMIGRATION to the short code number 864-237.  This will add you to our texting program to ensure we speak up at needed times.



Lastly, please consider the GALEO Latino Community Development Fund as you prioritize your annual donations.  Please follow the link here:
