Willie Velasquez: Your Vote is Your Voice
May 1st, 2018 7:00pm
Doors open at 6:30pm

From PBS:
Political empowerment for Latinos in the United States has always faced adverse circumstances. From poll taxes and gerrymandering to outright intimidation, Latinos have been kept from the ballot box in both local and national elections throughout history. A Mexican-American butcher’s son from San Antonio, Texas, Willie Velasquez questioned the lack of Latino representation in his city’s government, propelling him into a lifelong battle to gain political equality for Latinos.
