Office of Political Affairs

  • Facebook

Join OPA and expert panelists next Friday for an important discussion on modern-day voter suppression and its role in the 2020 elections amid added obstacles caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Voting is one of the most fundamental rights in our democracy, yet the United States has a long history of voter suppression. Oftentimes, minorities and communities of color are deliberately excluded from the electoral process.

Join us and UF Multicultural and Diversity Affairs on November 4th to reflect on results, aftermath, and share your thoughts!

The Office of Political Affairs of HSA is a nonpartisan group that serves as the Latinx community’s voice on campus, at the university, state, and national level, by vouching for our best interests, creating dialogues about policies and issues affecting us, and educating our community on the importance of being civically engaged.
