Rodolfo F. Acuña: My fear is that over the years both faculty and students have lost the sense that they owe the past and are holding Chicana/o studies in trust for future generations.
Living Latino and Latina in the United States
These articles provide a glimpse into the lives of Latinos and Latinas in the United States. This should not be used to represent the "Latino experience". It is simply a collection of articles, written from a specific perspective. Most of the authors listed below are either Latinos, Latinas or are those who have delved deeply into the Latino experience through advanced studies.
Mario Solis-Marich: Over 80,000 ballots are still uncounted in Maricopa County, Arizona — the county that could reelect anti- Latino Sheriff Joe Arpaio
Victoria DeFrancesco Soto: Mamás will be a particularly important electorate for President Obama. While women across the board approve of the President at higher rates than men, the President’s approval is strongest among Latinas.
Pilar Marrero: Moral issues rank very low in Latino Voter’s minds when making a voting decision while issues like the economy, jobs, taxes and minimum wage are far more important, a new poll released today shows. That finding totally contradicts the famous Ronald Reagan belief, said in the eighties, that “Hispanics are Republicans. They just don’t know it yet.”
