EARNING THE VOTE OF LATINA WOMEN
Anyone who wants to lead in California must do so with the support of Latina voters.
California’s independent redistricting commission adopted final congressional and legislative districts for the next decade, starting with the 2022 mid-term elections. When you read about a Latino-majority district in California—think Latina power. Latina voters consistently outperform their Latino male counterparts in voting:
22 of the 80 new state Assembly districts are Latino-majority with Latina power voting blocs;
10 of the 40 state Senate districts are Latino-majority with Latina power voting blocs;
16 of 52 total congressional districts in California are Latino-majority with Latina power voting blocs.
The articles below highlight the ever-growing Latina base of voters who are personally experiencing a housing crisis that is pushing their families out of their homes, and the climate change crisis in the form of toxic drinking water and pervasive health issues resulting from wildfires, drought and pesticide use near our homes.
It is time to invest in the Central Valley and in the Coachella Valley beyond the usual election cycle or tit-for-tat politics. It is beyond time that the pathway towards California’s future centers on the priorities of Latina women and women as a whole because we are the spark leading the ways towards a better future—LÚCETE!
