Hispanics are Coming Together to Unveil their Roadmap for the Future of America.
On January 11, 2012 – this will launch the 2012 Hispanic Voice Town Hall Tour across America that will invite city and community leaders and will be an open forum for all Hispanics to express their voice, concerns and solutions for our community and how we can best contribute to the future of America. The Tour will run through the 2012 elections and serve to help Hispanic understand why we must be more mindful of our voting responsibilities. More importantly, Hispanics must become more knowledgeable about why we matter as a growing community and that we must enable ourselves if our voices are to be heard and taken seriously.
The Town Halls will be objective, solution-oriented and forward-thinking. They will specifically address the road map but will empower participants to create the broader agenda items for Hispanics in America that are actionable and that support a plan that can be implemented at a local, state and national level. This will be a unique opportunity to give Hispanics the chance to unite, empower and expand our authentic and powerful identity. City by city, the agenda and voices will mature. Each month, 2012 Hispanic Voice Founder Glenn Llopis will be accountable to directly inform the media of the progress, evolution and our acceptance and accountability for our new responsibilities as citizens for a better America.
As our platform strengthens, we (Hispanics) will begin to trust our voice, appreciate our authentic identity and cultural nuances; and gradually we will understand why it is imperative that we own our vote regardless of candidate or party preference on Election Day. This Town Hall platform will seek to earn the respect from those who have ignored us and that unintentionally caused the misrepresentation of Hispanics along the way.
Our hope is to identify and discover fresh perspectives. Converge the powerful diverse thinking that is embedded in our rich legacies, diverse cultures and across all generations that we (Hispanics) represent. The outcome is to define an agenda that will unite our voice to key policy issues so that we can own our vote by approaching this critical decision with fresh perspectives that will best represent our community's ability to advance and become a more integral part of America's future. As a result, this initiative will organically focus on increasing Hispanic voter turnout with the goal of advancing our united voice with a new outlook and commitment that "changes our story" so that we can begin to work closer with government and big business for a better America.
