Heeding the Biden campaign’s organizing call, the organization is rallying some of the biggest names in the Latino community, including Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, and Attorney General Xavier Becerra to galvanize support for Vice President Biden.
Washington, D.C. — Today, the Latino Victory Fund launched the ‘Latinos con Biden Battleground Charlas’ tour, in tandem with the Biden campaign’s ‘Charlas con Biden’ Latino-specific organizing program.
Charlas are a space for friends, family, and neighbors to come together and talk about the issues that matter to them most and amplify Vice President Biden’s message to Latino communities across the country. ‘Charlas con Biden’ also serves to engage and motivate Biden supporters to host their own charlas and invite new supporters into the movement to make Donald Trump a one-term president.
“Latinos are fired up and ready to stand with Joe Biden to fight for the soul of our nation,” said Nathalie Rayes, Latino Victory Fund president & CEO. “At four months to the election, we’re honing our Latino outreach strategy by focusing on key Latino communities in battleground states that will make an impact in the 2020 election.”
The “Latinos con Biden Battleground Charlas’ tour will include a five-stop virtual conversation tour that is aimed at mobilizing Latino voters for Vice President Joe Biden in key Latino communities in battleground states across the country. The virtual tour stops are Texas, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Florida and Wisconsin.
Latino Victory has rallied some of the most influential Latinos and Biden supporters for this charlas tour, including the U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, the first Latina elected to the U.S. Senate, New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, the first Latina Democrat governor, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, Congresswoman Veronica Escobar, one of the first Latinas elected to Congress in Texas, and former presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
The ‘Latinos con Biden’ Battleground Charlas will begin on July 13 in Texas and end the initiative with a final Charla on August 17 in Wisconsin, with a focus on a Democratic National Convention kick-off.
Latino Victory became the first national Latino organization to endorse Vice President Biden for president just before the Nevada primary in February.
