Check out this innovative app designed to increase voter participation by young Latinos.
The launch of Unidos, a mobile app that features news, videos and emojis, aims to increase voter participation of what is potentially one of the most influential segments of Latino voters: millennials.
The goal of the app is to get the attention of young people between 18 and 34 years old by providing them with information and convincing them of the importance of getting involved, explained John Rudolph, professor and founder of Feet in 2 Worlds, a journalism project that has promoted the work of immigrant journalists since 2004. This new app was designed by Feet in 2 Worlds.
It will provide news and opinion pieces through videos, audio and articles from trusted media outlets and people will be able to share information using social media such as Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or SMS.
Unidos is now ready for you to download on your iPhone and it’s free.
