In an interview Hispanic news site Voxxi, Sandie Viquez Pedlow, executive director of Latino Public Broadcasting, talks about raising the profile of a growing segment of America.
“If you look at the Census, you see that Latinos right now are 50 million strong and represent 16 percent of the American population,” Pedlow said. “By 2050, nearly one-third of the total American workforce is going to be Hispanic. We, organizations such as Latino Public Broadcasting and other Latino organizations, really need to look at that and we need to translate those numbers into the many stories that are out there and distribute them across all media platforms, so that these stories can be seen and understood by the American public.”
