Housing: Latinos, Livable Communities, and Viable Urban Neighborhoods

The livable communities movement that promotes health and healthy lifestyles while fostering economically viable urban regions across the United States is a movement that will affect and benefit the Latino community greatly in this century. As the fastest growing minority segment in the country, Latinos must play an important role in the creation of livable communities for the long-term health and prosperity of the community.

Law: Voter Identification Laws: The Impact on Latinos
Possible changes to the federal voter identification laws could impact voters negatively - especially Latinos, other groups of color, the poor, and the elderly.
Health: Cervical Cancer and Latinas: A Preventable Disease
Latina fatality rates for cervical cancer are nearly 40 percent higher than that of non-Latino women. Increased funding for education prevention programs on cervical cancer need to be increased among Latinas to stem this fatality rate.
STEM: Intersection of STEM Education & the Green Economy: Incorporating the Latino Community
This panel discussion will focus on STEM education and the potential benefits for the Latino community to be at the forefront of the green economy, which is forecasted to be the engine of future economic growth.
