All the hope most Latinos had to improve their standing in America was riding on the electoral coattails of Hillary Clinton.  But now that the Democratic Party is in shambles, powerless and reeling from the most stinging defeat in political history, what is our community to do?  Where are we in 2017 and where are we headed?  What have we learned and what can we do RIGHT NOW, more than ever before, to finally find our voice?  

In the midst of the worse crisis in U.S. Latino history, Hispanicize convenes some of the nation's leading voices across the political spectrum and no tough question will be left unasked.  Will Latinos rise above partisan politics to finally find their unity, and if so, how can they go about this?  Political correctness just went out the window.  Join us for one of this important town halls we're confident everyone will talk about this year.
