Welcome to eLatina Voices
We are a new Latina movement born of the recognition that our future and the future of our children is at risk. eLatinaVoices understands that in order to build a stronger more powerful nation that we must work together to bring a united voice that speaks of the promise of America.
We are witnesses to the break in the basic principles upon which our nation was built. We hear, see and feel the hatred and the bigotry being voiced throughout the nation by some elected officials, their constituents and media. This cannot continue and expect that our nation will be better because of it.
Our intent is to encourage Latinas and their families, throughout the nation, to mobilize and act on behalf of their children, their community and our nation. We will encourage each one to take responsibility to lead and change their community by raising awareness, voting and engaging in advocacy to promote a better nation for tomorrow.
eLatinaVoices takes positions of strength regarding issues that impact their lives. We believe that children have equal rights under the Constitution of the United States and we are prepared to serve as the voices for children throughout Arizona and throughout the nation.
On March 16, 2011, children won their citizenship rights under the 14th Amendment in Arizona by helping to defeat an Arizona legislative bill on birthright citizenship. The fight for children’s rights is not over. We must once again unite to make sure that Arizona is not the bastion for enacting legislative bills and promoting public policies that hurt children nationwide.
Our task for a better tomorrow for our children continues. Join us in our struggle for prosperity, justice and equality for all Americans and all children.
Latinos represent the future of our nation. The shift in demographics will result in extraordinary changes in our society as a whole and especially among the Latino community. Latinos are such a rapidly growing segment of the population that they will influence every measure of our nation’s performance. It is expected that the Latino population will grow by a stunning 48% by 2050.
This is attributed to being a younger population than any other major group in the nation and the fact that Latino families are larger. These two factors will drive the growth of the Latino population and this exponential growth is irreversible. These are simple demographic trajectory of people already living in the United States. This video was made possible by Telemundo and reflects the “Latino Wave” of the future.
