It is a well known fact that many died for our right to vote, and we must not squander that away. Therefore, we believe in utilizing all creative measures necessary in order to overcome voter apathy within our community.
Cruise To The Polls is a national campaign encouraging Chicano and/or all other lowrider owners to remember election day on November 4, 2014. Somos Independents is an independent voter group led by American women of Mexican descent, and we are concentrating our efforts in the southwest leading up to a national campaign via "Cruise To The Polls" that targets Chicano and lowrider owners to remember to vote on November 4, 2014, election day. The campaign will kick off on November 1, 2014, as several lowrider clubs will participate in a lowrider cruise in key high Chicano / Latino markets that will send a message with regard to how important our voting responsibility is. Often times, Tea Party Republicans make the mistake of lumping all brown people together and believe we should all go back to Mexico -- even though we were born here and indigenous to the United States long before the Mayflower landed near Plymouth Rock.
Cruise To The Polls creatively revives the Chicano movement and raises awareness to the expanding lowrider culture. It embraces Chicano art, music and more.
