Twitter Chat: Jobs & Opportunities in the Hispanic Community

October 3, 2011

    In New Mexico, we celebrate a unique cultural heritage that can't be found anywhere else. Hispanic Heritage Month reminds us how truly special New Mexico is.

    It's a time to look back at the culture and traditions that shaped our state and people, and it's also a chance for us to look forward at building opportunities for the Hispanic community to thrive in the future.

    The Hispanic community has been hit hard by this bad economy. Hispanic household wealth dropped by 66 percent between 2005 and 2009, and today, 6.1 million Hispanic children are living in poverty across America - more than any other group. This news is unacceptable and we need to do everything we can to reverse it.

    I've seen a number of ideas discussed in Congress on how to create jobs and opportunities in Hispanic communities, and I've proposed some of my own too.

    But I want you to be part of this discussion.

    This Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 12:30pm MDT, take part in a conversation on Twitter about creating jobs and opportunities for Hispanic communities. I'll be joined by contributors from the Center for American Progress and the Hispanic online network, LATISM.

    Tweet your questions TODAY and include the hashtag #HHMChat.
