MIAMI, FL – October 28, 22020 – (LATINX NEWSWIRE) – This Friday, October 30th, creative content developer of Miami and Mana Wynwood, Moishe Mana along with Mayoral Candidate of Miami-Dade County, Daniella Levine Cava, with a coalition of Community Leaders and urban street art legends, like Atomik, La Yera, and German DuBois to name a few. We invite the community to wheatpaste posters to create a mural in Wynwood and encourage early voting, which ends on Sunday, November 1st. Mana understands that Millennials and Gen Z voters between the ages 18 to 38 represent the future of this country and nearly 40% of the electorate in 2020. Yet, little if any of the content created by major campaigns is done so with them in mind. “We at Mana Urban Arts created a project270.org to increase voter awareness and turnout, among first-time voters and minority voters. We are very proud we formed a partnership with Voto Latino to also get our Poster Campaign project out to the Latinos of Miami-Dade County,” said Moishe Mana, the creative contents developer and largest landowner of Miami.
The project will cover all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Mana’s aim is to get critical information out through a creative medium that reflects the collective consciousness of the United States and motivates young voters to show up on November 3rd and encouraging them to early voting through November 1st, this Sunday.
To do this, we are partnering with outstanding graphic and street artists to create 52 state-specific (plus DC and Puerto Rico) posters. To maximize the reach and overall impact of the project, all imagery created will be made available to the public, for free, by going to project270.org, to get your free poster of your favorite street artist or state go www.project270.0rg and all posters images are free to download. Images will be sized for sharing on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
