Special Event Tonight Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 5:30pm PST/8:30pm EST! Please join EME and the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project for Fun-Filled Free Gala!

By EME Team

We at Equal Means Equal are proud to support the work of the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project.

SVREP is the oldest non-partisan voter registration organization in the country.  They have registered over 2.7 million Latino voters and won over 200 voter suppression lawsuits over the past 50 years.

Their work in the next few months is essential to register a new generation of Latinx citizens and EME is there to lend our support, our materials and our voice.  SVREP is committed to turning out over 350,000 NEW Latino voters in Texas and Arizona and we will be showing the students Legalize Equality on Constitution Day (Thursday September 17th)! We hope that educating the students about the Equal Rights Amendment and where it stands will help galvanize them to register and vote.  SVREP is working with high school principals to register all HS seniors!

My friend, producer and activist Pam Tarr and her husband Jon Cooksey are producing a fantastic live stream Gala Dinner with amazing music, inspiring messages from politicians and activists, live hosts, with a tequila toast at the end! EME is proud to have participated in the show and produced a short message on why voting this year would have a historic effect for women.

Did you know?

  • Over 16 MM eligible Latino voters in the US are not registered to vote yet!
  • Every year 800,000 Latinos turn 18 and are eligible to vote! So over 3MM new young voters since the last Presidential election!
  • The average age of the Latino electorate is 22 years old – so getting them out to vote now will mean substantial empowerment for the Latino community in all elections to come!
  • If we turn out a small fraction of these voters they will impact election decisions up and down the ballot!
