On November 6th, 2012, Latino voters made it clear that comprehensive immigration reform was long overdue and that candidates who used anti-immigrant rhetoric would no longer fare well in future elections.
Today, more than 11 million undocumented immigrants have incorporated themselves into the social and economic fabric of American culture, but still live in the shadows. A broken immigration system continues to stagnate their full contributions at all levels. Attendees will have the opportunity to come together with diverse stakeholders to discuss past strategies and key messaging points used by advocacy groups.
The United States, home to over 50 million people identifying themselves as Latinos, currently spends about $2.6 trillion a year on health care costs, and yet ranks 37th in the world for quality of care. Obesity related ailments account for up to 21% of this price tag. By the year 2030, nearly ½ of all Americans will be 30
or more pounds over a healthy weight, qualifying them as obese. Nearly 40% of Hispanic children and
adolescents are overweight and obese, compared to less than 30% of white youth. As the nation’s largest, fastest growing, and most under-insured population, Latinos will bear a substantial burden in realizing their
right to a healthy life. This town hall addresses the multiple factors that impact the disparities Latinos face in their health.

revenues are expected due to increases in income and payroll taxes.
During the Federal Training Institute (FTI) in Las Vegas, Nevada, LULAC discussed programs and opportunities in the Federal Government that will be focused on providing students, recent grads, veterans and those re-entering the workforce with a pathway to federal careers.
