Florida Democratic Party’s Campaign for Accountability Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month
Intensifies Grassroots Efforts in Hispanic Areas Across the Sunshine State
To kick off Hispanic Heritage Month, the Florida Democratic Party’s Campaign for Accountability continues to grow its Hispanic outreach. In Orlando, Miami, Broward, and Tampa grassroots leaders throughout the Sunshine state are joining phone banks and canvasses in an effort to mobilize Hispanic voters.
“As we recognize the numerous contributions Hispanic Americans have made and continue making on our society, the Florida Democratic Party will focus its continued efforts on building grassroots leaders in communities and communicating the candidates’ position on issues Hispanics care most about. Whether it is job creation or improving Florida’s public schools, our volunteers will be knocking doors and calling Hispanics statewide to spread our message,” said Campaign for Accountability Director Ashley Walker.
Hispanic Heritage month, observed from September 15 – October 15, celebrates the culture and traditions of those who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico and the Spanish-speaking nations of Central America, South America and the Caribbean.
Floridians have had enough of the corruption and out-of-touch antics by Tallahassee politicians. This year Florida Democrats are united, fighting to hold the Republicans who have taken our state down the wrong path accountable. Working to channel the enthusiasm of volunteers and grassroots activists across Florida, the Campaign for Accountability is helping elect Democratic leaders who are fighting to clean up the Republican mess in Tallahassee, to bring good jobs to the Sunshine State, improve our public schools and get our state back on track.
