May 2, 2013
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM
Taylor Seminar Room, Nieman Foundation for Journalism, One Francis Ave, Cambridge

The demographics of the United States are changing rapidly and Latinos are playing an increasingly important role in politics and in the nation's broader public discourse. During a special event at the Nieman Foundation, three leading journalists discussed how these changes are affecting the country—and how they are being covered in a new media environment, with a special focus on migration, politics and Latino life. Panelists included:
  • Maria Hinojosa, anchor of NPR's “Latino USA”
  • Isaac Lee, president of news at Univision
  • Laura Wides-Muñoz, Hispanic affairs writer for The Associated Press
Moderator: Ann Marie Lipinski, Nieman Foundation curator

Co-sponsored by the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study and the Nieman Foundation.
