Mi Familia Vota and Partner Organizations To Launch Basta Abbott Campaign
Preview of Campaign Ahead of Digital Video Launch and Protest at Abbott – O’Rourke Debate
Houston – Governor Greg Abbott’s leadership and policy priorities have harmed the Latino community in Texas. His rhetoric and policy choices are contributing to continued targeted attacks on the Latino community, the passage of voter suppression bills, a lack of Medicaid expansion during a pandemic, and constant anti-immigrant rhetoric from our state leadership. This election cycle, Latinos, the largest demographic in the state and 30% of the state’s electorate, will make our voices heard and hold Governor Abbott accountable to our community.
Join Mi Familia Vota and partners as we unveil our new campaign, #BastaAbbott, where we will debut our new digital advertisement that highlights how Governor Abbott has failed the Latino community, preview our upcoming action against Governor Abbott and discuss how we are going to hold the Governor accountable to the policy priorities of the Latino community.
