Latinos and Asians, Asians and Latinos: it’s a refrain that’s become increasingly common since numbers from last November's election , along with Pew Research data on who's immigrating to the United States, came out.
Most recent talk about these “blocs” hinges on campaign strategy or immigration reform, both issues of national and regional concern. Yet given the many municipal elections happening across Southern California this spring, there’s a question more immediate and closer to home: How might Asians and Latinos affect our region’s political landscape?
On May 9, the Crawford Family Forum will take a closer look at recent trends in Latino and Asian demographics, political engagement and electoral representation. A panel moderated by KPCC news editor Oscar Garza will also explore the impact Asian and Latino residents of Southern California may have on the regional politics scene.
