Community Conversations, New Website, and New Report on Hispanics and Winning the Future

Summary: 
The administration announces community conversations around the country on the critical role Hispanics play in the President’s vision for America to win the future.

On a conference call today, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis, White House Senior Advisor David Plouffe and White House Director of Intergovernmental Affairs Cecilia Muñoz announced a series of community conversations around the country on the critical role Hispanics play in the President’s vision for America to win the future.

In his State of the Union address, the President made it clear that the most important contest we face today is not between Democrats and Republicans, but rather America’s contest with competitors across the globe for the jobs and industries of the future. During the call, the Administration officials also introduced the report “Winning the Future: President Obama’s Agenda and the Hispanic Community,” which can be found on the new site whitehouse.gov/hispanic.
