LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KFTA) — The Arkansas immigrant advocacy group, Arkansas United, and their partners officially launched a “Unite the Vote” campaign committed to turning out a historic Hispanic, Asian and black vote in Arkansas in these upcoming elections.
Dozens of immigrant and African American leaders will come together Saturday, August 25 from across the state for a day-long training on voter registration, civic education and nonpartisan get out the vote activities that these individuals have committed to taking back to their communities this fall.
At 2:00 p.m., those leaders will be available to speak to press at the Workforce Center in Little Rock about why these elections are important to them, as they depart for an afternoon of door-to-door canvassing in Southwest Little Rock.
This is a location where leaders know brown and black voters could be the determining the vote in expected close races, especially for the Little Rock Mayor and Congress.
Arkansas’ Unite the Vote campaign is connected to a national effort, which is rallying voters under the shared aspiration for an America where each of us can expect respect, opportunity to fulfill our dreams and where families can be kept together, free and thriving.
At today’s training and activities, Arkansas United will also be unveiling its latest logo and new, shortened name.
