"GALEO is proud to partner again with the Hispanic Institute. As we have seen over the years, the Latino vote continues to grow and engage in Georgia. We have seen tremendous interest from our community about voting and ensuring that our collective voices are respected by policymakers," said Jerry Gonzalez, executive director of GALEO.
"Georgia is an important state, and we have taken notice of the growth of the Latino electorate. The Hispanic Institute is honored to partner with GALEO to make the Latino vote even stronger," said Gus West, chairman and president of the Hispanic Institute.
The partnership will focus on support for door-to-door canvassing, live bilingual phone calls to Latino voters and social media/Spanish media outreach.
