The group’s Ohio director, Jason Riveiro, lobbied to bring the convention to Cincinnati, arguing that holding the weeklong meeting here would have a greater impact on making people aware of Latino issues than holding it in Florida and Texas, states where the Hispanic population is much greater.

Former Mexican president Vicente Fox, and U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius are among the speakers lined up. LULAC has said one reason it selected Cincinnati was this region’s growing Hispanic population, which it says numbers 125,000.
