Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated every year between September and October to honor the contributions of Hispanic culture as well as its rich history and traditions.
Despite Latinos being the fastest growing and youngest group of Americans—many are not registered to vote.
It’s estimated that in 2016, 28 million Latinos will be eligible to vote. To raise awareness about this issue and to get more Latinos to become registered voters Voto Latino has launched the campaign Hispanic Heritage Month of Action (HHMA).
“Hispanic Heritage Month of Action is a one of a kind on-the-ground and digital voter registration campaign that seeks to shift this cultural celebration to a month of action around voter registration and community organizing,” HHMA said in a written statement.
