Make The Road Action in Nevada has been hard at work identifying progressive Latinx voters, engaging them in the political process, and turning them out in support of candidates who prioritize justice for working Latinx families. MRA in NV has quickly become a leader in advancing candidates and causes that improve the quality of life for our members and for the greater community as a whole.
In Nevada, elections are oftentimes won or lost by a slim margin of thousands or tens of thousands of votes, as we saw most recently in the 2020 presidential election. This allows MRANV the opportunity to identify, engage, develop, and mobilize our base of Latinx and immigrant working families to lead campaigns to reshape their neighborhoods, their communities, and their state. Already, we have helped elect members to key positions, from the School Board to the State Senate.
In the second half of 2021, MRA in NV is working with partners on a Community Leadership Academy to develop both candidates and campaign staff—from our community, for our community.
In 2022, Nevada will be one of the most hotly contested states in the country. The 2020 elections showed that, while Nevada has trended blue in recent years, the state remains very much up for grabs in statewide elections. We are therefore planning an even bigger voter contact push in 2022, focused on Latinx voters in Clark County. These voters proved crucial to Biden’s victories, but there is more work to do to continue to increase turnout and confront the inroads that conservatives have made with some Latinx men. By running a multi-layered voter contact program (doors, phones, texts, and digital), we are confident that we can have the impact we need to win in 2022 and set the stage for a successful 2024.
