Don't miss this historic event—Attend a DNC watch party near you.
Virginia’s Latinos are fired up for an historic Democratic National Convention this week! Folks like Leni from Arlington and Vivian from Roanoke are already in North Carolina. Many others across the Commonwealth are organizing parties to see San Antonio's Mayor Julián Castro make history as the first Latino to deliver the DNC keynote address on Tuesday and to watch President Barack Obama's speech Thursday when he will officially accept the nomination to be the Democratic presidential nominee.
This week's Democratic National Convention is bound to be exciting and inspiring. It also marks an important point in the campaign when we must all come together to make sure we do everything possible to help our community prepare for the October 15th voter registration deadline and for the election on November 6th.
As Mayor Julián Castro wrote in an email last night:
From offering a degree of relief and hope to talented, driven, patriotic young people, to passing landmark health care reform, to cutting taxes for the middle class, President Obama has been a great friend to the Latino community. He understands that America is strongest when we level the playing field and create opportunities for everyone. The progress has been great -- but there is so much left to do.
Join your friends, family, and other Latinos at one of our volunteer-organized convention watch parties this week, and help grow this campaign, Latino-to-Latino:
