A pool of fundamental leaders gathered Monday at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago to participate in Latino Policy Forum’s unprecedented summit, seeking to address the challenges and opportunities to a growing economic gap. “America’s rising demographic tide presents tremendous opportunities to build a robust, sustainable, and competitive economy, but seizing these opportunities will require a major change in course,” said Ruy Teixeira, Center for American Progress and contributor to All-In Nation: An America that Works for All, who served as keynote speaker at the summit. Moderated by Columnist of the Chicago Sun-Times Laura Washington, attendees had the chance to hear remarks from four leading experts Dr. Teresa Cordova, director of Great Cities Institute; Dr. David Stovall, professor at University of Illinois, Chicago, Amisha Patel, executive director of Grassroots Collaborative, and Susana Vasquez, executive director at LISC Chicago.
