The overall mission of the UF College Democrats Hispanic Caucus is to inspire, unite and sustain the hopes of the Florida Hispanic community, engage in a conversation for change, and stand to create a unified presence for all Hispanic American college students at the University of Florida.
As the Hispanic Caucus, we represent and express the views of Latino students that identify with the Democratic Party. Our goal is to raise political awareness and increase political participation within the Hispanic community through advocacy for or against specific local, state and federal legislation that affect Hispanic constituents. We also work to increase the presence and strength of the Hispanic vote at the polls on election season through voter registration drives within the Hispanic Community. By promoting political participation and involving more Hispanics in the political process, the Latino community would better express their views and concerns with issues of great importance to the Latino community.
