The Tequila Party Movement Review in Preparation of the 2012 Presidential Cycleby Dee Dee Garcia Blase on Nov. 08, 2012, under female-led political movement, Latina matriarch political movement, National tequila party movement, Women Voters
Our Year in Review and some of our accomplishments held in preparation of the 2012 Presidential Cycle.
We didn’t just talk the talk — we walked the walk.
It is impossible to list everything we have done over the past approximate year. Thousands of photos have yet to be uploaded, and you can see more regarding what we have done in our facebook wall photos and/or in our albums or/or by visiting www.nationaltequilapartymovement.com and www.somosindependents.com.
We had Get Out the Vote initiatives/rallies in New York, Washington D.C., Colorado, Nevada, Nebraska, Kansas, Indiana, Michigan, Arizona, Oklahoma, Florida, New Mexico and more.
We are unique because we are Mexican-led and Latina led, and we know Mexican-Americans make up almost 70% of the Latino population. We refuse to allow the Cuban-Americans and whites to be our voice. We believe we are smart enough to be our own voice and we know we can articulate our own opinions to that political regard as Chicanas.
The Tequila Party Movement is a woman-led counter movement to the extreme Tea Party Movement. We are a national movement to get out the Latino Vote so that we can support immigrant friendly politicians.
Structural and leadership changes being made with the Tequila party movement and Somos Independents; but, Shirl Mora James (lead co-president and Civil Rights / Immigration Lawyer) at the helm as several of leaders are going to take a sabbatical through rest of the year in light of the approaching holiday season, and DeeDee Blase will be retiring from the hard core political grassroots activism.
