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.
