Latinx Vote But Make It Fashion
Updated: Sep 23, 2020
Presidential 2020 elections are right around the corner y tu en la casa huevoniando quemando los frijoles que tu madre te dijo que cuidaras...translation you are at home, being lazy and burning the beans your mom told you to keep an eye on.
On the real tho’ have you registered to vote? You are one of 32 million eligible Latinx voters. THIRTY-TWO MILLION! La comunidad...your undocumented, DACAmented, our elderly relatives, immigrants detained in I.C.E camps, those incarcerated during COVID-19, the Dreamers and those hustling for a better life...your community depend on you. Like Beyonce and her comadre Nicki Minaj rap “if you ain’t on the team, you playing for Team D!” If you decide not to vote--- then you playing for Team D as in the orange Cheeto’s team.
"You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it."
And we want this President out.
If you are looking to inspire your voting vibes, here are eight vote/vota apparel and gear items made by Latinx designers for Latinx voters. Buy and wear these proudly in the next 40 days before the election to spread the word to vote. All around this is a win-win, not only do you support a Latinx small business by purchasing their apparel, but you educate and inspire others to vote!

A black and white striped round-neck tee with the word “vote” is a symbolic-female fashion forward statement, but also serves as a reminder for our Latinx community to vote. Buying this Grl Collective tee gives 20 percent of the proceeds to funding girls' education.
