For reasons of history, language, culture, and family ties, Latinos recognize the importance of Latin America to the United States. Their unique view on the region is particularly well-suited to building a policy that meets the challenges of the twenty-first century. The Latino Task Force was convened to formulate specific foreign policy recommendations to President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney in advance of the 2012 presidential elections, advising both candidates on how policy must change to recognize and respond to the growing strength of the U.S. Latino community.
This special preview event was held to discuss the Task Force’s vision and the issues the group will address in their forthcoming report.
