The tremendous growth of the Latino population has fueled a greater sense of urgency to ensure that its voices and perspective are incorporated in public-policy decisions. Latinos account for 90 percent of the state's current population growth, represent over 44 billion dollars in purchasing power in Illinois, and represent 60 percent of the new entrants into the Chicago regions labor market over the past decade.
Mayor Castro is a rising Latino leader, the youngest mayor of a Top 50 American city. First elected in 2009 and re-elected in 2011, he has brought hi-tech jobs to San Antonio and focused on raising educational attainment and bolstering investment in San Antonio’s urban core. Fittingly, Mayor Castro will share his thoughts on the importance of leadership and service, not just for the Latino community but for the nation as a whole, at our November event
The time is right for Latino Education, Leadership, Service: A Shared Future – We invite you to join us to as Mayor Castro will highlight Latinos' contributions to society and discuss the importance of education in creating a prosperous shared future for Latinos and the rest of society.
