Latino Rebels Town Hall Mixer:

The Economy and Latinos in 2016

For our second edition of the Latino Rebels Town Hall Mixers, we discuss the economic issues affecting the Latino community. Where are the jobs? How can Latinos be self-sustained and self-create work? What is “community equity building” from a financial standpoint? How can we support Latino-owned small businesses and foster growth? More importantly, what are the economic issues we need to measure during this election cycle?

This nonpartisan discussion is an opportunity to engage with experts, voice your opinions and share your main concerns.

MODERATOR: Julio Ricardo Varela, Futuro Media Group (NPR’s Latino USAand Founder of Latino Rebels
