The Latino community is the balance of power in any election. As the largest and fastest-growing minority group in the United States, Ohio, and Cuyahoga County, Latinos are making history, and the media, economists, and political pundits are taking notice.
Important and critical issues will be raised, ranging from educational attainment including low graduation rates among our Latino students, economic and workforce development, and immigration issues.
“The candidates will respond to important questions presented by a panel of young Latinos, and share with the Hispanic Community their vision, and what that will mean for Hispanics,” says
José C. Feliciano, chairman of the Hispanic Roundtable.
The Hispanic Roundtable is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to act as a catalyst to empower the Hispanic Community to become full partners in the economic, education, political, civic, and social life of Greater Cleveland.
This event is FREE and open to the public. For more information, call 216-235-1578.
