Attend a Lunch Panel Discussion on the Growing Impact of the Latino Vote in Virginia on October 24 in Virginia

VACOLAO invites you to a Lunch Panel Discussion on the Growing Impact of the Latino Vote in Virginia. The Latino community is one of the fastest growing populations in Virginia that is helping to reshape the political landscape of the Commonwealth. Access to health care (Closing the Gap) and immigration related issues such as in-state tuition for undocumented students, issues important to the Latino community, loomed large in the last year race and brought many Latino voters to the polls. The impact of the Latino vote in Virginia will likely increase as Latino voters are also on average younger than any other voting group and the impact of their growing political power will be felt for many years to come.

Please join us for a discussion on the demographic shift taking place in our state, why it is important for our community to vote, and how our votes as members of the Latino community can help define the policies and laws that will impact all of our lives. This is a non-partisan event.

Panelists:

  • D. Xavier Medina Vidal, Ph.D. Department of Political Science, Virginia Tech
  • Tram Nguyen, Co- Executive Director, Virginia New Majority
  • Margie Del Castillo, Field Coordinator, Virginia Latina Advocacy Network
  • Sindy M. Benavides, Director of Civic Engagement & Community Mobilization, League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC)

WHEN: Friday, October 24, 2014 from 12.00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (Registration begins 11:45)

WHERE: Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington
4444 Arlington Blvd.
Arlington VA 22204

We will provide lunch. Please RSVP HERE at your earliest convenience. Seats are limited. If you have question, please contact Edgar Aranda-Yanoc atedgar@justice4all.org or call 703-772-1555.
