Tonight at 7 p.m., C-Span will be airing a panel discussion on The Status of Latinos in America: Challenges and Opportunities.
And the discussion couldn’t come at a better time in conjunction with the development and progress of Democracia USA already doing monumental work in the Hispanic community.
Some of the key topics during the discussion will be on economic well being, education, health, and electoral participation. Gender, leadership and immigration will also take a leading role in the dialogue.
Sound familiar? Democracia USA commits itself to the steady enhancement of the Latino community through all of those themes.
The panel discussion, organized through the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education, will have key note speakers and prolific personalities (listed below). AAHHE, like D-USA brings hot topic issues to the plate, but focuses those topics within higher academic communities.
This will be a very attention-grabbing discussion.
The panel is moderated by Henry Cisneros and panel members include:
Aida Alvarez, Former Director of the U.S. Small Business Administration
Lorraine Cortes-Vasquez, NYS Secretary of State
Arturo Madrid, Murchison Distinguished Professor of Humanities, Trinity University
Maria “Cuca” Robledo Montecel, President and CEO, Intercultural Development Research Association
Antonio R. “Tony” Sanchez, Chairman of the Board/CEO, Sanchez Oil and Gas Corporation
Richard Tapia, Mathematics Professor and Maxfield Oshman Professor of Engineering
Solomon “Sol” Trujillo, CEO, Telstra Corporation, Sydney, Australia
Ralph de la Vega, President & CEO, ATT Mobility
