In nine states, the number of Latinos who are Gen Z and likely to be voting for the first time is greater than the margin by which either presidential candidate won in 2016. Latinos have consistently shown an overwhelming dislike for the border wall, and this an opportunity to galvanize that section of voters. This online concert is to bring everyone in these communities together to simply “Rock The Border Stop The Wall” and raise awareness before the 2020 Election.
