About this collection

 As the largest and oldest non-partisan Latino voter participation organization in the United States, the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project (SVREP) has been an essential player in Latino voter mobilization and participation. In 1974, William C. Velásquez established the organization in San Antonio, Texas, the country's largest Latino-majority city. Velásquez was SVREP's first executive director and president, and he worked with the organization until his untimely death at age 44.

SVREP's mission is to empower Latinos and other minorities by increasing their participation in the American democratic process. Still in operation, SVREP produces public and educational programming to train, organize, finance, develop, expand, and mobilize Latino leaders and voters around an agenda that reflects their values.
In this digital collection, you will find public service announcements, footage from Nicaragua and El Salvador trips, training sessions, and other recordings from staff and the public from the 70's, 80's and 90's.

*Please check back soon for the finding aid that lists the complete collection. The collection will be available to the public by appointment by contacting UTSA Special Collections.
