The Virtual Gala is set for today, Wednesday, September 16th, 5:30 PM PST/7:30 PM CST. SVREP's President Lydia Camarillo will be joined by Secretary Henry Cisneros and Councilman Gil Cedillo to host the event. Actor and Comedian Erik Rivera will be the Master of Ceremonies.
This amazing event is all for SVREP's work to empower the Latino vote for the 2020 general election. SVREP predicts this election will have the highest number of Latino voters registered and casting their vote ever, beating their performance in the 2016 general election. An estimated 17.5 million Latinos will register to vote by the deadline, and 15.5 million Latinos will cast their vote. Latinos will represent 25% of the total votes cast in Arizona, California, and Texas. SVREP is working hard to increase Latino voter registration and turnout in competitive states where their votes can significantly impact the outcome of the elections at every level.
Tonight you will hear from Latino leaders and entertainers such as Grammy and three-time Latin Grammy winner, Lila Downs; the comedic geniuses from Culture Clash; the fabulous La Santa Cecilia; the legendary band, Ozomatli; the world-famous Danny Trejo; award winning producer and actor Kenny Ortega; award winning women’s rights activist and director Kamala Lopez; and other celebrated talent.
