Center for Brooklyn History Virtual Event

Latinx people make up the second-largest ethnic and racial group in America, with a population of over sixty million. Yet so often their diversity is misunderstood, their contributions ignored, and their concerns overlooked. As we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, join five Latinx leaders representing government, the media, academics, philanthropy, and the arts for an exploration of what a more Latine-inclusive America might look like and how we can make that vision real. 

Markos Moulitsas Zúniga founder of Daily Kos, moderates this conversation with Rhode Island Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea, Puerto Rican writer and journalist Anjanette Delgado, and Laura E. Gómez, professor of law, sociology, and Chicana/Chicano studies at UCLA and author of Inventing Latinos. They discuss themes from the soon to be released book of essays, If We Want to Win: A Latine Vision for a New American Democracy edited by Diana Campoamor (to which many of them contributed), and give shape to a future vision of a Latine-inclusive society.
