SVREP is committed to educate Latino communities across the Southwest about the democratic process, the importance of voter registration, and voter participation. At its core is its mission to politically empower Latinos by increasing civic engagement in the American electoral system. This can only be attained through the strengthening and exercising of the fundamental right to vote. Thus, SVREP's motto: "Su Voto Es Su Voz" (Your Vote is Your Voice).
Southwest Voter Registration Education Project (SVREP) is a non-profit, non-partisan Latino civic education organization. Founded in San Antonio, Texas, in 1974 by William C. VelÃ Â¡squez - champion of the Mexican American voting rights movement, SVREP has been serving communities in the Southwest for more than 20 years. The organization first opened its doors in California in 1984 to increase statewide political and civic participation of Latinos.
