As an Afro-Latina my vote preserves my culture and represents my future. My vote is a reminder of the sacrifices made to give me this right, and a reminder of the continuing struggle to preserve my rights, and the rights of my children, against all obstacles.
I am proud to serve as the Director of Voter Assistance in the City of New York. My work helps New York voters understand their rights, registers them and advocates for better election laws, policy and practices.
