• Election 2010 and Communities of Color

A special breakfast Ford Hall Forum event

Thursday, November 4, 2010
Modern Theatre, Suffolk University

Local experts explore how the newly elected and reelected officials are likely to address upcoming legislation affecting Latino, Black, and Asian American populations on education, immigration and language, affordable housing, economic development, and health and safety. Hear what the panel thinks we can do to ensure better representation for our communities and help get our candidates elected in Massachusetts.

Panel includes Dr. Maria Idali Torres, Director of the Mauricio Gaston Institute for Latino Community Development and Public Policy; Dr. Paul Watanabe of the Institute of Asian American Studies at UMass Boston; and Marvin Venay, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Black and Latino Legislative Caucus. They join State Representative Linda Dorcena Forry in discussion.

A light breakfast will be served.
