Voto Latino’s Education Matters Project mix video
The Voto Latino conference took place in Southern California a few weeks ago. I went to Los Angeles, CA along with the Education Matters Project to speak on a panel at Voto Latino’s Power Summit and to participate in their inaugural Power Summit.
As the 2012 election campaign season is under way, VotoLatino is launching their first annual conference to give participants the skills they need to organize and remind them of the importance of voting. Organized by Rosario Dawson and Maria Theresa Kumar VotoLatino’s goal is to empowers American Latinos.
Voto Latino also allowed us to collect videos at the conference. See below for the video and below that for some of the quotes from the videos.
- “Because of education, everyday I feel stronger, more powerful and more optimistic.” -Emanuel Pleitez
- “Because it’s the foundation of the American Dream.” -Juan Cuba
- “Give everyone here in the United States an opportunity to create the life that is their dream.” -Rosario Dawson
