Immigrant Rights Group to Host Press Conference Celebrating Voter Turnout Among Immigrants

San Jose, CA -- Immigrant and refugee rights organization, Services, Immigrant Rights and Education Network (SIREN) will be hosting a press conference Wednesday, November 7 at 11:00am to celebrate the voter turnout among immigrants and youth in Northern California and the Central Valley, and the difference they made in the passing of key state ballot propositions and local measures.

Since September, SIREN’s civic engagement team, made up of immigrants and youth, made over 130,000 calls and 3,000 texts to immigrant voters in multiple counties throughout the Bay Area and Central Valley in Spanish and Vietnamese.

“In this election, we showed up to vote in massive numbers in our region and the state, our campaign was about engaging with immigrant and youth voters and building community power with them” said SIREN’s Executive Director, Maricela Gutiérrez.  “We will keep our movement going by organizing this new voting bloc, and continue to fight for immigrant and refugee rights.”

Speakers will include immigrants and young people who voted in their first election, and who are left out of the voting process but who helped lead the voter engagement campaign.
