Valderrama lends his voice to the cause, drawing support to events, including the Voto Latino Power Summit. The summit, a two-day event, was held in April where panels presented and tried to empower the young Latino voters. Valderrama stated at the conference, “We come to this country to work and to earn every dollar. We don’t ask anybody of anything. We take jobs that a lot of people often assume don’t exist. I learned to understand that my community, and directly my family, my father, my mother and my sisters needed some kind of a voice. As I developed my platform in the entertainment industry, I understood the opportunity I had to raise awareness and bring attention to not only local, but national issues.”
