On the trail in Nevada

For the first time in history, Latino voters will comprise the largest non-white voting bloc in the 2020 election. In a 12-part photo essay in High Country News, Homelands’ Bear Guerra follows the Bernie Sanders campaign in Nevada as it works to win Latinos’ hearts and minds and get them to the polls on caucus day.

Sanders would go on to win 51% of the Latino vote in the February caucus. He finished with twice as many votes as his nearest competitor.

Bear’s piece was created in collaboration with the PBS film, Latino Vote: Dispatches from the Battleground, directed by Bernardo Ruiz.
