“Hispanic or Latino” is the official designation on the voter registration form for the fastest-growing segment of the population in North Carolina. About 9% of all people in N.C.—up from 5 percent in 2000 and just 1 percent in 1990—identify as Hispanic or Latino…although they comprise only about 4 percent of registered voters.
The LPNC are holding our own here, with about 4 percent of registered Libertarians self-identifying as Hispanic or Latino. But in view of the fact that one of our core principles is that folks should be free to live wherever they want, and can afford, to, shouldn’t we be doing better with this fastest-growing constituency?
In lieu of our regular weekly discussion of current political events from a Libertarian perspective, this week we are welcoming special guest Maria, who coordinates a grant-funded program designed to assist migrant and seasonal farm workers in obtaining high school equivalency qualification.
Maria will talk to us about the needs and aspirations of the population she serves and discuss her program’s experience in marketing their offerings.
Meeting starts at 7 p.m. and the discussion with Maria will begin at 7:30 to give everyone time to find a seat and order food and drinks. Hosted by Brian Irving, LPNC vice chair and WakeLP secretary.
