Plainfielder speaks at statewide forum on NJ Hispanics

 
Plainfield resident and Latino activist Christian Estevez will be among the speakers at a forum on the 'State of Hispanic New Jersey' being sponsored by the Hall Institute and the Rutgers Center for Latin American Studies. The forum, which is open to the public, will be held April 13 at the Cook Campus in New Brunswick. Chris is Vice President of the statewide Latino Action Network.

As the call for the forum points out, we are in an extremely volatile political year, with President Barack Obama seeking a second term and the Republican party engaged in a bruising fight for the party's nomination.

Experts agree that the Hispanic vote will be an important element in swinging the election and the forum will examine the political 'lay of the land' among New Jersey Hispanics as regards both political parties.

The keynote speaker is Dr. Mark Hugo Lopez, associate director of the Pew Hispanic Center in Washington, DC.

The forum is free and open to the public, but advance registration is encouraged due to seating constraints. For more details and to register, visit the Hall Institute's website here and click on the 'Register' tab.


The State of Hispanic New Jersey

The Latinos of Plainfield do NOT realize the power they can have within Plainfield or DO NOT CARE.

The Latino Action Network united with the Latinos/Hispanics of Plainfield can be incredibly strong and powerfully successful. Christian Estevez can be the next Latino on Plainfield's City Council.

Actually, WHY ISN'T HE?
