The Official Community for Tennessee's Democrats
Our mission: To empower Latinos through a coordinated partnership with all levels of the Tennessee Democratic Party. Latino values and Democratic values are one and the same. Therefore, our caucus seeks to place these values on the forefront of Tennessee politics. Through engagement and activism, the Latino Caucus will give a voice to Latino concerns and act to ensure that Latino interests are represented in Tennessee Democratic Party affairs.
The Latino Caucus is the Tennessee Democratic Party's primary Latino engagement mechanism. We seek to increase political participation of Latinos in all activities of Tennessee politics. In particular, we seek to expand Latino representation through:
1) Voter registration and education
3) Candidate training
4) Community activism
5) Civic engagement
6) Youth empowerment
The Latino Caucus is designed to engage and organize the Latino community on both a state and local level. Instrumental in this process is the relationship between the Latino Caucus and the Latino Youth Council. The caucus will serve as a mentor program for the council and will provide the leadership to guide the next generation of Latino activists.
Also we will practice fundraising at all levels, from grassroots base building to high-value events. By engaging our communities, we will build a network of politically aware and motivated individuals ready to take the initiative to organize and register voters. The caucus will be instrumental in identifying viable Latino candidates at all levels of office. We will assist in the training of these candidates and provide the resources to run strong campaigns and fight for victories. By cultivating relationships with elected officials, community leaders, and political activists, the Latino Caucus will be a strong presence in all aspects of community outreach.
All of these actions feed into our goal of creating a well-represented, highly motivated, actively engaged political instrument. We are a high energy, results-oriented body determined to change the face of politics in Tennessee.
