Cruise To The Capitol

Civic Engagement With the Chicano Lowrider Community
Phoenix, AZ – Even in the latest census count, Phoenix, Arizona’s Chicano / Latino population is 41 percent, larger than most cities.  Slow but sure progress is being made when it comes to our civic engagement and voting strength, but we believe we can do better. We are excited to host a Lowrider Show N’ Shine Cruise To The Capitol event that will revitalize the Chicano community in doing away with laws that make cruising a crime.
Arizona Sen. Catherine Miranda will be speaking to the Chicano community on how to participate in the political process that makes Cruising on Central a crime.  More importantly, she will talk about her plans to introduce a Chicano license plate on the heels of Colorado State Rep. Joseph Salazar’s introduction of their Chicano license plate that benefits the Chicano and Latino community.
Somos Independents and Chicano Radio Network will host a Get Out The Vote Booth and encourage voter registration as they prepare for the 2016 Presidential election cycle.  There is strength in numbers, and we believe in getting better within our American political process.  The Chicano Movement was powerful and strong during the 60’s and 70’s, and we are capturing that spirit today and for our future.
