As the Hispanic Caucus, we represent and vocalize the views of Latino students across the country that affiliate with the Democratic Party. We work with the Democratic Party to advocate economic prosperity, health insurance reform, education and immigration reform that will fix our broken immigration system.
One of our main goals is to increase the education and involvement of Latino College students by promoting participation in the political process. We also hope to educate the Latino community through media outreach, fundraising, and events that will help raise awareness on Latino issues.
During the 2008 elections, Latino voter turnout went up nearly 3% compared to 2006 turnout (Pew Research Center: Dissecting the 2008 Electorate: Most Diverse in US History), and 67% of Latino voters voted for President Obama. New Latino voters stand to have significant influence in deciding future elections, particularly as immigration and other issues important to Latinos come into play. Young Latino voters account for a growing number of voters and an increasing share of the Democratic Party. The CDA Hispanic Caucus is working to nurture and sustain that growth in Latino participation in future elections.
