The Changing Face of America: Celebrating Latino Leaders

The Hispanic community currently makes up about 18 percent of the U.S. population. By the year 2060 they are projected to account for nearly 30 percent of the nation's populace.

As their numbers grow, Latinos are also beginning to have a larger impact on American society, economy, and politics. 

How are America's leaders responding to the needs of Hispanics and what are they doing to highlight the issues that matter most to this group?
