As the Latino population continues to grow in the U.S., how will this demographic shift impact the political landscape and the future of American democracy? In this important conversation, experts will shine light on the diversity, complexity, and divergent views within the Latino community, while also discussing the power Latino voters have to affect elections, redistricting, public policy, and more. John Gutiérrez, director of Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies (CLACLS) at the CUNY Graduate Center, moderates a discussion featuring Rochelle Garza, president of the Texas Civil Rights Project, who was the 2022 Democratic nominee for Texas attorney general; Luis A. Miranda, Jr., founding partner of the MirRam Group, founding president of the Hispanic Federation, and a community leader for over four decades; and Sabrina Rodriguez, a national politics reporter covering voters for The Washington Post.

Presented with the Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies (CLACLS).

Part of the Promise and Perils of Democracy Project funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
