Would a Donald Trump nomination drive Latino voters to the polls in November? Will Hispanics in Wyoming, New York and Pennsylvania back Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders? If Ted Cruz won a contested nomination, would that help the GOP attract more Latino votes?

In the 2016 presidential race, the much-coveted Latino vote has been a hot topic of conversation. But as Al Día writes, many of these discussions have been “from the outside looking in at the Latino community nationally, regionally and locally.”

Join us for an event that will be completely different: On Wednesday, April 13th at 5:30 p.m., Al Día is hosting a town hall about the Latino vote with Councilwoman Maria Quiñones-Sánchez, School Reform Commissioner Farah Jimenez, state Rep. Angel Cruz, state Rep. Leslie Acosta and Daniel Restrepo, the former special assistant to President Barack Obama. Al Día executive editor Sabrina Vourvoulias will moderate the discussion, joined by Citified editor Holly Otterbein. This is the first event in a series on the Latino vote.
