As we wait for EVERY single vote to be counted, we gotta make sure we are taking care of our bodies and energies.
This year this holiday has a significant weight for many of us as we remember in love and in rage, the hundreds of thousands of lives lost due to COVID-19 and the Trump administration’s failed handling of it. The continued murders of Black and Brown people by the police, and the ongoing pandemic of murders of trans people, 30 counted in the U.S. so far this year, making it the deadliest since records began and affecting Black trans women disproportionately.
Latino voters in North Carolina are facing intimidation and aggression at the polls, but that won’t stop us from making our votes count and our voices heard.
Mijente has endorsed Hurtado, whose platform focuses a lot on public education, as well as support for immigrant and Latino families like his. His opponent, Representative Ross, has used his position in public office to protect big banks instead of working families, to support bills that endanger the environment, to block Medicaid expansion, and to slash unemployment benefits.
In this year of incredible loss, we prepare to celebrate Dia de los Muertos and invite you to honor the tradition, as we resolve to keep up the fight in the name of our ancestors, our communities, and our future. One out of the many diverse popular expressions and traditions practiced on this day across the Americas, and expressly in Mexico and throughout Central America, is creating an altar or ofrenda.

A look back at a speech made by Marisa Franco in front of the offices of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio on the night that he lost the election in 2016, before we found out that Trump had won the presidency. Mijente was one of the coalition partners that formed the BaztaArpaio campaign to defeat the Sheriff that election.
It’s time to abandon this self-righteous quest to appease your political godfather—Donald Trump—and actually do your job. Governor: cut the checks, cancel rent and mortgage payments, grant Florida the relief we deserve.
A coalition of progressive Black, Brown, immigrant, and queer community members in Georgia are coming together to move Georgia voters. The group, named “Take Action, Get Power” is anchored by GLAHR Action, SONG Power, and Mijente, three groups that have historically done grassroots organizing work in Georgia and the South with U.S. born and immigrants of color and LGBTQ communities. They will be running a campaign through the Mijente PAC in Georgia targeting the Sheriffs elections in Gwinnett and Cobb County, and against Trump.
GLAHR Action, SONG Power, and Mijente, are getting together to mobilize voters to unseat an anti-Immigrant Sheriff with a racist history in Gwinnett County, Georgia.
After years of denigration and violence from the government, for Latinos this election is a fight to demand respect. Now, in the middle of a global pandemic, it is linked to our very survival.
Camila Cardoza Herrera is currently a canvasser reaching out to Latinx voters in North Carolina. In 2016 Trump won the state by less than the same number of Latinxs that are eligible to vote but are not registered. One of Mijente’s goals in the state is to increase the number of Latinxs voting against President Trump, starting with making sure all people are registered.
