Lambda Pi Chi Sorority Partners with Rock the Vote

 

NEW YORK – July 4, 2016Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Incorporated partners with Rock the Vote in an effort to register and encourage Hermanas (sorority members) to exercise their right to vote in the 2016 Presidential Election. Through this partnership, the Sorority hopes to play a role in increasing the amount of all voters of color, with a special emphasis on the Latino community, while engaging Hermanas in the electoral process. The Sorority will highlight the significance of civic engagement at their 2016 National Convention, Nuestra Fuerza: Hermanas in Solidarity in Tampa, Florida.

 

“Oftentimes, we as individuals diminish the impact our vote has which is why [the Sorority] is so excited to have Maria Padilla, a non-partisan political analyst, focus on the importance of the Latino vote and how it could change the course of this year's election,” said Celina Holson, national convention planning committee member and national vice president of new membership. “We hope our Hermanas can use the knowledge gained at this workshop to enlighten their respective communities about the role Latinos play in our nation's election profile.”

 

With the upcoming U.S. Presidential election this November 2016, the Lambda Pi Chi’s National Convention Committee presents this collaborative workshop with Rock the Vote to encourage voting participation and provide resources for submitting a ballot. During the Convention session, sorority members will learn more about the Presidential Candidates and their positions on education, immigration, and women’s rights. Lambda Pi Chi’s 2016 National Convention weekend will take place July 29 – 31, 2016 in Tampa, FL.


Individuals interested in registering to vote either for the first time or because of a recent relocation, can click here to use Rock the Vote submission form.  Registrants must be over 18 years old and an U.S. citizen.


Rock the Vote is a nonprofit and non-partisan organization that focuses on registering young people to vote and driving youth to the polls.
