Panel Information


11:10 AM EST

Your Stories Are Our Stories: Historias Compartidas

Latinos account for 20% of the population, yet are disproportionately underrepresented in certain sectors (e.g., media and the federal workforce), and over-represented in others (e.g., agriculture, construction, and service sector industries). As we inch closer to becoming the majority demographic by 2050, it is imperative that whatever walk of life we come from – we feel empowered to tell our story. This panel will highlight three LULAC leaders in their own right, and their poignant life journeys that led them to advocate for our 65-million-person-strong familia.
