Antonio Gonzalez

Antonio Gonzales
Antonio Gonzalez currently serves as president of the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project (SVREP) which is the oldest and largest non-partisan Latino voter participation organization in the nation. Since assuming the presidency in 1994, Gonzalez implemented several initiatives that helped more than 10 million Latinos registered to vote.
Gonzalez and SVREP have been central figures in the dramatic growth of Latino political participation across the nation. Gonzalez was the central architect of the Latino Vote USA (1996), Latino Vote 2000, Campaign for Communities (2004), and the Ten-Four campaigns that mobilized record numbers of new Latino voters across the U.S.
During the first dozen years of Gonzalez’ tenure, SVREP has helped double Latino registration, from 5.4 million in 1994 to more than 10 million registrants in 2006.
In early 2005, Gonzalez led a 55-organization nonpartisan coalition in the historic Los Angeles City Mayoral election that resulted in the first Latino Mayor in modern history in America’s 2nd largest city.
