Pledge to Stand with Immigrant Families: Demand Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Ever since my Grandfather who was raising me and my brother got deported, our lives have not been the same. I want my Grandfather back. And no family should have to go through what my family is going through. So since spring, I spent every afternoon and weekend volunteering with my 13-year-old brother Luis. We walked door to door all summer in the heat, and worked hard all these months to get our community registered and out to vote.

I can’t believe we are all still waiting to find out which candidates won in Arizona.

But I already know who the real winners are. It’s us.

What Luis and I worked so hard for feels really close now. Because we voted, our community has the power now to win real immigration reform.

I got started volunteering because of my grandfather was taken away from us. He worked so hard to raise my brother and me. All he was doing was supporting our family. I don’t want other families to have to go through what my family is still going through. So even though I am only 15 years old, I know I can fight. I fight for him - and for all the families in Arizona, and across the country.

Please sign this pledge to stand with me and all immigrant families to demand comprehensive immigration reform.

I hope you can join me and my brother in what we need to do next.

AZ Central: Hispanics will change Arizona's voting patterns

When will Latinos finally flex their muscle at the ballot box?

That question is asked in virtually every election cycle and usually is quickly followed by the declaration, "This will be the year" -- and then followed by an underwhelming voter turnout among Latinos.

Predictably, we're hearing the same question during the 2012 election season, but this time, the same answer carries a bit more confidence for a good many reasons:

SB 1070 has been a galvanizing force for the Latino community, which largely views such anti-immigration measures and resulting rhetoric as also being anti-Latino.

The only thing between my Tio Will and his vote

This weekend, I got a call from my Tio Will – he asked for help filling out his early voting ballot. He was eager to vote but had no idea how to properly fill out the paperwork. He told me that one of our volunteers, Yolanda, had visited him during a canvassing session and inspired him to get involved. She told him why being a part of this campaign was so important to her, and why she believed that it was so important to elect people that represented her and her community’s values. For Tio Will, filling out the ballot was the only thing between him and his vote.

Over the past few months, we’ve led voter registration drives, held voter education sessions and talked to as many people as we can about why it's so important to show up on Election Day. We’re knocking on doors, calling our friends and family and talking to members in our community about why getting involved is critical to this election. But getting out the word isn’t enough – we need to make sure we’re providing support at all levels.

Take the first step -- Sign up to Volunteer!

I organize because I believe in lifting barriers and creating access for everyone in the community – helping folks like my Tio Will become an active participant in the voting process is just one step towards making our community stronger.
