Press Conference Today: Latinxs are Voting Early in Record Numbers in Milwaukee
One week before Election Day, Voces de la Frontera Action will hold a press conference announcing they have knocked on over 42,000 doors in Milwaukee, contributing to record early voting totals on Milwaukee’s near South Side
Taken together, these numbers could make the difference in the Presidential and Senate races in Wisconsin
Who: Voces de la Frontera Action members, vote organizers, first time Latinx voters
MILWAUKEE — To date Voces de la Frontera Action members have knocked on over 42,000 doors in Milwaukee to mobilize the vote. On Tuesday, November 1st, Voces de la Frontera Action members will hold a press conference to announce the early voting totals from Milwaukee’s near South Side, where these efforts have been taking place. Reporters will have the chance to talk to young first time voters and older newly naturalized US Citizen voters who have been involved in canvassing efforts.
“Voces de la Frontera Action’s strong voter mobilization efforts, Donald Trump and Ron Johnson’s anti-immigrant positions, and the recent court decision opening the South Side’s Forest Home Library for early voting have led to historic increases in early voting this year,” said Christine Neumann-Ortiz, Executive Director of Voces de la Frontera Action, who will be among the speakers. “This will lead to massive vote totals for pro-immigrant candidates coming out of Milwaukee, which could tip the balance in these statewide races. Our community has been attacked during this election like never before, but we are rising to meet the challenge.”

MILWAUKEE, WI — In response to Wednesday night’s Presidential debate, Voces de la Frontera Action issued the following statement from Executive Director Christine Neumann-Ortiz:
“Tonight offered a clear choice. Hillary Clinton advanced concrete goals to make government more supportive of immigrants and working families. Trump continued to demonstrate that he is a danger, with his flippant attitude towards world affairs, his lack of knowledge on policy issues beside empty platitudes, and his continued divisive attacks against women, refugees and immigrants.

MILWAUKEE, WI – In response to Tuesday’s debate between Wisconsin Senate candidates Ron Johnson and Russ Feingold, Voces de la Frontera Action issued the following statement from Executive Director Christine Neumann-Ortiz:
“On Tuesday night, Ron Johnson embraced some of the most extreme aspects of Donald Trump’s agenda and rhetoric. He was also dishonest about his own positions and their impact. Johnson echoed Trump’s baseless and dangerous claims about a rigged election and urged supporters to be poll watchers to prevent non-existent voter fraud, a clear invitation to intimidate voters, particularly African-Americans, Latinxs and Muslims. Like Trump, Johnson embraced Trump’s anti-worker policies, such as opposing a living wage. Johnson failed to acknowledge his own Senate voting record of opposing a minimum wage increase, and during the debate, appeared to flip flop, stating that his new position is to raise the $7.25 minimum wage only as high as inflation. This limited increase would still keep working people in poverty. Johnson and Trump alike are corporate CEOs who can’t relate to the struggles of working people. Both have personally profited from the stagnation of workers’ wages and from pro-business trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which Johnson voted to fast-track.
