DUSA Gets Out the Vote Again

NOVEMBER 7 GENERAL ELECTIONS WERE CRITICAL FOR DOMINICAN AND LATINO COMMUNITIES

Dominicanos USA has always aimed to engage and empower the Dominican community. In fact, we have been able to register 150,000 people to vote since 2015. This past week we made sure to remind as many people as possible to go out and vote in the 2017 general elections in NYC and other areas. This election season Dominicanos USA sent out 55,000 texts and made 4,500 calls to ensure our people exercise their right to vote. We believe that through voting we can impact our community in a powerful way.

DUSA team calling and texting voters to remind them to participate in the latest elections.

Motivating the community to participate in these local and state elections has allowed our fellow Dominican and Latino politicians to represent us in throughout the U.S., including the first Latinas ever elected as state representatives in Virginia. Electing these Latino officials has greatly contributed to the empowerment of our community and our influence in the American political system. We plan on continuing to encourage our community to keep voting, and therefore make sure our voices are heard.

Why is Hispanic heritage month an important time of the year?

Why is Hispanic heritage month an important time of the year?

 

 

            As we wrap up the ending of celebrating Hispanic heritage month, we reflect on why this
month matters. Hispanics have been pillars of America throughout our history. As many of us
assimilate to American values and cultures, the traditions and lineage of our families cannot be
erased. The story and journey of all Hispanics symbolize the American dream.   

We have fought
in wars, contributed to the arts, and are now growing to be one of the largest communities in America.
Hispanic history is also American history and it is important to have a month that recognizes
Latinos of the past, present, and future. Some of us are first or second generation born in
The United States and others are immigrants but we are united by our Hispanic heritage.
Dominicanos USA is proud to continue to add to the impactful Hispanic history of America and
