As part of the New American Voters 2020 campaign, the National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA) joined Latino Decisions in a teleconference to breakdown the latest voting data from the Latino Decision’s American Election Eve Poll, and discuss the impact of Latino, Asian American and other newly naturalized citizen communities on the outcomes in politically important states such as Arizona, Florida, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
New American voters had a massive impact on the 2020 election, exercising a powerful electoral voice in many politically important states across the country like Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Organizing efforts carried out nationwide by the immigrant and refugee rights movement have helped millions to naturalize and exercise their new rights as citizens. Today we celebrate our communities’ strong civic engagement and commitment to democracy and justice. The number of naturalized citizens, along with U.S.-born voters from Black and Brown communities, proved critical in determining the next president.
