The Latinx voter has transformed the US electoral landscape. As the number of constituents who identify as Hispanic grows, so do the questions surrounding fundamentally diverse groups become a voting block? Can it be considered a unified, nationwide constituency? Join our panel of experts: Prof. Benjamin Francis-Fallon of Western California University, Prof. Victoria DeFrancesco Soto of the University of Texas at Austin, Prof. José Cruz of SUNY Albany, and CT Reps. Cristopher Rosario and Geraldo Reyes of the Black and Puerto Rican Caucus, as they discuss the rise of Latino vote.

Moderated by Prof. Charles Venator Santiago of the UConn Department of Political Science.

This program is co-sponsored by UConn's El Instituto: Institute of Latina/o, Caribbean, and Latin America Studies, and the Connecticut Democracy Center at Connecticut's Old State House.
