On Wednesday, the DNC held National Service Day in Denver. DNC delegates, volunteers and staff were asked to participate. There were about 12 of us from Massachusetts who decided to help by reaching out to Latino voters in neighborhoods of Denver. It was truly a team effort. After a morning meeting the day before, we had t-shirts made that read MA Latinos United for Obama. About half of us were Hillary supporters while the other half were Obama supporters. Given that Hillary did so well among Latinos, we decided it would be important to send a message that in Massachusetts, we have been able to build unity among our Latino delegates, sending a message that we, as Latinos, can unite for a common good – to take back the White House. It was really great to see that we had Latinos from different areas of the state, Springfield, Groton, Greensfield and Boston. Of course, we also had our “honorary Latino” Reuben Kantor from Councilor Mike Ross’s office help us as well. We went to Latino neighborhoods and conducted door-to-door outreach, asking Latino voters to support Obama. It was quite an experience. We want to bring this energy back to Massachusetts and build upon it so that we can garner all Latinos, regardless of who they supported in the primary, to come join this campaign for change.
