Join us for “Latino Priorities in the 2016 Presidential Election,” a talk by Héctor E. Sánchez on Thursday, Mar. 24 in the Center for the Arts (Building 1P), Room 119 from 2:30pm to 4:30pm.

Héctor Sánchez is the Executive Director of LCLAA (Labor Council for Latin American Advancement) and the Chair of NHLA (National Hispanic Leadership Agenda). He is an indefatigable voice fighting systematic injustices against Latinos and the most vulnerable communities across the nation. At CSI, he will speak about the Latino community’s priorities and strategies for the 2016 presidential election, including immigration reform, education, and healthcare. Héctor launched national campaigns to improve the conditions of working families and strengthen the Latino voice on critical issues such as labor rights, women’s rights (trabajadoras), immigration, civil rights, healthcare, education, underrepresentation in government, the environment, and hate crimes against Latinos. He frequently appears as a commentator on national and international TV networks and his opinions have been widely published by NPR, The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, The Huffington Post, and Spanish-language media outlets.
