Conservative group 'Bienvenido' aims to reach young Hispanics

LUBBOCK, Texas -

By 2020, 32 million Hispanic people will be eligible to vote, and one faith-based conservative organization is making it its mission to educate the "sleeping giant," or young Latino voters. 

Bienvenido is a non-profit that began in Lubbock. Its goal is to enhance the conservative message within the Hispanic community without claiming one party.

"Our culture already dictates what direction we're going in and how we are going to see it," Tony Renteria, Bienvenido Co-Chair, said. "We just need to know what politicians, whether they are Republican or Democrat, agree with that, and so that's what we are looking for. We give them the opportunities to ask these questions, so being conservative is not because it's a Republican thing, it's because it's our cultural thing."  

The group will host a conference in Lubbock on Friday, August 2, that will feature speakers from the National Rifle Association and young conservative voices. The dinner reception will take place at the Willows Event Center, located at 6303 82nd St., from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tickets for the dinner and shooting event are $200. Tickets for the dinner, VIP Reception and Shooting Event are $250.
