Voting Rights Session "Ensuring Latino Representation in Democracy" Focusing on the importance of voting rights and political participation.

The need for Latino representation in democracy is underscored by their significant impact in the 2020 presidential election and the barriers to voting and political participation they often face. The UCLA Latino Policy and Politics Initiative reported that in 2020, Latinos cast 16.6 million votes, a 30.9% increase over the 2016 presidential election, playing a key role in swinging election results in several battleground states.
