“American democracy today is at serious risk from internal forces, and the Latino community and electorate are smack in the middle of the morass. More than ever, we need inspiration from the lessons of real-life victories over the challenges, and bold, candid analyses that challenge our thinking about the future course of our community and country. On these two points, If We Want to Win delivers.”

Collectively these essays lay out a plan for the successful political and social inclusion of the fastest growing sector of American society.”

“At an inflection point in the United States’ demographic destiny, If We Want to Win offers a powerful vision. When we answer this call for more inclusive philanthropy, more investment in education, and greater civic participation, we can help Latine communities unleash their full potential and create a more just, more equal society.”
