Austin Monitor Radio: Jolt Texas
Jolt Texas is working to build a statewide movement of politically engaged and active Latinos. Maria Renee Morales, who is the Austin organizer at Jolt Texas, sits down with Austin Monitor reporter Jessi Devenyns and editor Elizabeth Pagano to talk about how she is working to turn out the vote in Central Texas and share some of the barriers she faces in increasing political engagement in young Latinx Texans.
Austin Monitor Radio is produced in partnership with KOOP 91.7 FM.
The Austin Monitor’s work is made possible by donations from the community. Though our reporting covers donors from time to time, we are careful to keep business and editorial efforts separate while maintaining transparency. A complete list of donors is available here, and our code of ethics is explained here.
