Since 2008, UnidosUS has registered more than 600,000 voters and motivated them to take their newfound power to the polls. The Power of 18 voter engagement campaign builds on our history as the largest Latino-led voter registration organization in the country to energize and mobilize the Latino community to register and vote in November.
Power of 18 engages potential voters via on-the-ground canvassing concentrated in Florida and across the country, and through digital platforms. The campaign engages, educates, and assists eligible voters where they are, shows them the value in voting, helps them register when possible, and helps them advocate to others. And related UnidosUS initiatives such as the High School Democracy Project and the Latino Empowerment and Advocacy Project integrate the values of civic engagement into school and community programs to build the next generation of voters.
