Panel – “Unleashing the Giant: Voter Registration & Civic Engagement” Season 10 (2019)

The time is now for Latinos to unleash the giant, energized and empowered, and reflective of the growing diversity in the United States. It must begin with exercising our right to vote. We can only edge closer to true representations of our community when we use our vote as our voice, so our presence can not only be felt in the electorate, but public policies can better resemble and reflect the needs of our community. As educators, advocates and leaders we must all work together to engage the next wave of voters, Latinos or otherwise, so as to build a civic society and representative democracy inclusive of all our interests. The panelists will discuss efforts to promote the broader movement for social and economic justice through increased civic participation, working with community-based, educational, religious, labor, and other organizations seeking to build civically cognizant and active neighborhoods. Among the topics are increasing voter registration, the need for practical and targeted voter education, critical engagement and participation rates, and organizing and exposing Latino youth and community members to social change opportunities and long-lasting community power.   Introduction / Moderator: - Cecile Dahlquist, Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, Student Health Center-Palm Desert Campus, and Doctoral Candidate-Cohort 11, Educational Leadership Program, CSUSB Introduction / Moderator   Panelists: - Janet Bernabe, Riverside Regional Coordinator, Mi Familia Vota - Luz Gallegos, Community Programs Director, TODEC Legal Center - Francisco J.
