[Cincinnati, OH – February 1, 2017] Life for Latinos in the United States is more than unsettling, “two steps forward and three steps back” that’s what Award winning journalist Maria Hinojosa coined the “U.S. Mambo” and it comes at a high cost. Hinojosa will explain why, in her keynote Latinos & Immigration: The U.S. Mambo as the featured speaker for the Woman’s City Club annual National Speaker Forum April 20, 2017.

Latinos are the fastest growing demographic in our country but the rhythm of their progress has been uneven. Her topic “Latinos & Immigration: The U. S. Mambo.” explores in detail why given that the future of this county will be increasingly Latino, what happens to this population will have a direct impact on what the future will look like for the country. This matter to all of us.
