Latino Leaders Hold Press Call and Webinar to Discuss Latino Impact of 2012 Election

Latino Vote
On Tuesday, March 5th, Latino Decisions along with national immigration, Latino and labor leaders will discuss the results of the 2012 election season and the impact Latinos had.

This press call and webinar will also reveal the results of a nationwide poll of Latino voters that reports their current perception of the Democratic and Republican parties, the role that immigration reform plays in each party, and how each party can gain or lose Latinos depending on how they address comprehensive immigration reform.

Participants include Matt Barreto, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Washington, and Principal at Latino Decisions; Sylvia Manzano, Senior Analyst at Latino Decisions; Eliseo Medina, Secretary-Treasurer of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU); Clarissa Martinez de Castro, Director of Immigration and National Campaigns at the National Council of La Raza (NCLR); with moderator Frank Sharry, Executive Director of America’s Voice Education Fund.

Inspired by the release of data by Progress 2050 at the Center for American Progress, this discussion will unite Latino leaders to analyze the impact Latinos had in the previous election, who strongly supported President Obama in his re-election.

The press call and webinar is scheduled to start at 1:00pm EST on Tuesday, March 5th. To listen, dial 866-952-1906 and use the passcode: CITIZENSHIP. To view the visual presentation, go to, and enter Meeting ID: CITIZENSHIP, and Entry Code: ATTENDEE.
