The most important election is just underway and OneAmerica Votes is helping immigrants all across Washington State to vote!
We are going to several cities to inform and educate immigrant voters on ballot initiatives and candidates who will make a positive difference in their lives. OneAmerica Votes has evaluated the impact of initiatives on immigrants’ lives and interviewed candidates to determine who would best represent these communities. OneAmerica Votes is everywhere immigrants are- from Yakima to Seattle, and every city in between.
From in-language phone banks to endorsements, OneAmerica Votes encourages immigrants to vote and empowers their voice in the democratic process. We are on our way to creating opportunity and granting justice for all.
Join OneAmerica Votes as we build power in immigrant communities in a 2012 get-out-the-vote effort!
After John Koster, a candidate for Congress in the 1st Congressional District, made degrading comments about immigrants in a speech on September 24 at the Skagit Business Alliance candidate’s forum, OneAmerica Votes members wrote a letter to his campaign demanding an apology.
