There are many political issues and debate topics that affect us all, of course, but the lives of Latinas are especially impacted these days. We feel it’s important to keep you informed about issues that affect you and your family so that you can make decisions that best serve you and make your voice heard.
The thing is, we don’t all agree. Latinas are affected differently based on a slew of personal circumstances, but we feel that regardless of where you stand, we should all know what’s going on and what’s at stake for whom. Lucy Flores, Democratic candidate for Nevada Lt. Governor says, “I can assure you that there is no uniformity of opinion in a group as large and diverse as the Latino community! I have found that it is much more productive to focus on what brings us together—a shared commitment to education is the best investment we can make in our future, a focus on creating jobs and economic opportunity and to keeping government accountable to ordinary people.” In an effort to bring us together, we’re giving you 20 political debate topics that affect the lives of Latinas so that you know what to look into and where to research further.
1. Immigration Reform
We figured Immigration Reform, perhaps one of the most debatable topics on the table, was obvious, which is exactly why it’s at the top of the list.
