“The Role of Latinos in 2016 Politics and Beyond” will be discussed Thursday, Oct. 15, at 6 p.m. in Student Union Room 2584 on The University of Toledo’s Main Campus.

The event will close UT’s celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month by focusing on the vital role the Latino community will play in politics in the future election cycle.

“We are excited to offer this program as the election season heats up, and students and the community are becoming more and more involved in the political process,” David Young, director of the UT Office of Multicultural Student Success, said. “It is an outstanding way to close what has been a wonderful month of programming.”

The panel will consist of Adam Martinez, member of Toledo City Council; Mark Urrutia, program adviser at the UT Minority Business Assistance Center, and member of the Catholic Order of Foresters and the UT Latino Alumni Affiliate; Anita Lopez, Lucas County Auditor; and Kassandra Reyna, UT student and president of the Latino Student Union.

Aleiah Jones, UT success coach, will moderate the discussion.

The free, public event is sponsored by UT Office of Multicultural Student Success. It is part of the office’s Panel With Purpose program, which gives students the opportunity to engage in honest conversations on critical issues that affect the African-American, LGBTQA and Latino populations, and also impact the community.
