Hispanic Coalition NY Join RISE Campaign


RISE CAMPAIGNALBANY, N.Y. – Today, we are joining Voto Latino, Mi Familia Vota, iAmerica and 150 additional partners in launching RISE, a digital and on-the-ground voter registration campaign this Hispanic Heritage Month.

Now in its fourth year, the RISE campaign urges Latinos to register to vote and encourage their family, friends and colleagues to do the same in preparation for important upcoming elections. The RISE campaign, launched today on the first day of Hispanic Heritage Month, will challenge Latinos to recognize the power in their vote and leave an everlasting legacy in American history.

The RISE campaign challenges the Latino community and allies to RISE: Register to vote; Ignite community involvement; Strive to grow our political power; andEngage by becoming citizens and mobilizing others to join the movement.

Throughout the month, RISE partners will be celebrating the diversity in our community by highlighting a different segment each week, including our LGBTQ brothers and sisters, the Afrolatino community, immigrant youth, and our indigenous ancestors. We’ll also be celebrating National Voter Registration Day on September 26.

RISE was first launched in 2014 under the name Hispanic Heritage Month of Action and is led by Voto Latino, Mi Familia Vota and iAmerica. With over 500 partners that include nonprofit organizations, media companies, individual influencers and small businesses, the RISE campaign uses culturally-relevant online content, webinars, on-the-ground activations, and distribution of partner toolkits to educate and engage Latinos at a national and local level.
