2012 Post-Election Briefing & Reception

By Armando Bellmas, Director of Communications
November 02, 2012

Over the past few weeks, the Latin American Coalition has conducted North Carolina's largest Latino voter registration and Get Out The Vote campaign this election season, geared toward building the power and influence of Hispanic voters. Over 102,000 Latinos in North Carolina are registered to vote leading up to this week’s election (compared to over 68,000 in 2008 and just over 10,000 in 2004). As a swing state, North Carolina has the 11th largest Latino population in the United States and boasts one of the fastest growing populations of Latino citizens under 18. The impact of that growing power and influence is too important to be ignored.

The Latin American Coalition and Packard Place will host a 2012 Post-Election Briefing & Reception on November 7th, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. in downtown Charlotte to review the impact of the Latino vote this election season and the influence it will have on critical issues facing the Latino community in North Carolina, as well as across the nation. As Charlotte, North Carolina continues to grow, we call on our community to embrace the more inclusive, diverse, and highly innovative city and state we have worked so hard to become.

Join us for election analysis, personal stories of mixed status family unity and educational opportunities for DREAM Act-eligible youth, stimulating conversation, and international delicacies and refreshments at Packard Place, 222 South Church Street in downtown Charlotte, on Wednesday, November 7, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. [Parking info.]
