Latino Resources Registers Voters

Latino Resources, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, received its certification from the Illinois State Board of Elections as a bona fide State Civic Organization. The mission of Latino Resources is to connect Latinos to bilingual networks of support for access to community resources, services and educational programs that will promote active Latino civic participation within their respective communities.

Executive Director Dr. Elena Garcia Ansani launched the Latino Voter Outreach Project on May 29 at Evanston Township High School by conducting onsite voter registration. Dr. Garcia Ansani said, “It is critical for Latino members of our community to civically participate by voting. It is equally important for Latino leaders to demonstrate to our Latino community that our vote is our voice. Latino Resources purpose for this initiative is to ensure our Latino voters become actively engaged in civic participation.”

On Aug. 9 at the Civic Center, a Latino Resources’ team of more than 20 volunteers received training and were sworn in as official Deputy Registrars by Jonathan Williams, manager of community services at David Orr’s Cook County Clerk’s Office. Latino Resources is a member of the Illinois Latino Agenda, a coalition of city- and suburban-based nonprofits convened by the Latino Policy Forum, Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) and Illinois Latino Family Commission, who work collectively to secure strategic alliances throughout the state.
