As every year, in the framework of the celebration of the Hispanic Heritage Month in Georgia, the GALEO Luncheon took place, this time to also analyze the importance of educating the hispanic community ahead of the local elections next November in various cities of the state.

“We are now working very hard for local elections, to ensure that Latinos who are going to vote have access to ballots in the Spanish language, for example in the cities of Gainesville and Sandy Springs, as this helps them to exercise their right to vote,” said Jerry González, executive director of GALEO.

“We are also working very hard on the leadership course. We will be graduating a group of 25 youth who have already completed the GALEO Leadership Institute this November, when we will begin taking applications for the next class. We invite the community to be part of us ”, highlighted González.

Speaking about the upcoming local elections in Georgia, former state legislator Brenda López assured that no Latino candidate can win a seat without the support of Hispanic voters, “hence the importance of GALEO’s work in educating these communities to go out to vote in November, “he told MundoHispánico.

“We must teach our people how to be leaders of ourselves, how to contribute our voice at the level of Government agencies. And we work a lot with young people in particular, who are excelling in their careers as professionals and when they pass the GALEO leadership programs, they will be the people who are going to apply ”, said López.

Meanwhile, Erik Francisco Medina, communications director of GALEO, told MundoHispánico that after the conclusion of this Lunch, the topic to be discussed is the impact on the Latino community in Georgia and “all the good things that we are launching and there is the work of GALEO to be able to grow as a community and to be able to impact Georgia, ”he stated.
