Thousands of steps to push Americans to exercise their right to vote.
On Tuesday morning, the League of United Latin American Citizens, also known as LULAC, started their ‘Freedom Walk.’
They began at Texas Southmost College in Brownsville and then ended at city hall.
As we inch closer to the 2020 election, LULAC says their goal is to register more than one million Latinos and to push people to vote.
“It’s important that we get the message out because here in South Texas, there is an incredible amount of voters who are registered and don’t vote,” said Domingo Garcia, National President of LULAC. “We have to deal with that apathy and we got to get them to go vote. That’s going to make the difference in 2020.”
The group is in Corpus Christi.
They will then travel to all major cities in Texas until they reach Washington, D.C.
