Every 30 Seconds Campaign


Every 30 seconds a young Latino/Hispanic turns 18 in the United States. Most are U.S. born, according to the Pew Research Center, meaning an estimated 800,000 new voters a year. They are joining other Latinos from Generation Z (18-24 years old) and Millennials, (26-40 years old) who are considered an untapped voting bloc that is growing faster than any other ethnic group. This population is bilingual and more likely to use mobile technology, according to research studies. Latino young adults will be the main driving force among the Hispanic vote in the next two decades.
The National Catholic Council for Hispanic Ministry (NCCHM), The National Catholic Network de Pastoral Juvenil Hispana (LaRED), the National Catholic Partnership on Disabilities (NCPD) and several national Hispanic organizations are collaborating in the outreach campaign “#Every30Seconds #Cada30Segundos”, that seeks to empower young adult Latinos and their families to register, vote, and have an impact on who leads the country and their future.
