Brennan Center LIVE | Myth of the Monolith: The Latino Vote in Texas and Beyond

A record 32 million Latino Americans were eligible to vote in 2020. But the election results demonstrated yet again that the Latino vote is anything but monolithic.

What can we learn from electoral outcomes in Texas and other battleground states like Florida and Arizona to better understand the differing interests, values, and cultural histories of voters within this broad bloc? What’s the distinction between Tejano and Latino? And what role does age, gender, location, and socioeconomic status play?

Join panelists Matt Barreto, Sharon Navarro, Jason Villalba, and Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez for a discussion on these questions and more. Ray Suarez will moderate.
