Washington’s Latino population grew 71 percent from 2000 to 2010 and is expected to increase even more in the current decade. These free events will use film clips and personal stories to ask what this demographic shift means for our state politics, educational system and society. The conversations will explore what it means to be a longstanding Latino Washingtonian, a recent immigrant, an undocumented worker and someone affected by the DREAM act.

These Think & Drink discussions will feature an interview with Cerna, led by moderator Ross Reynolds in Seattle and Mike Faulk in Yakima, interspersed with clips from Cerna’s upcoming KCTS documentary Latinos: The Changing Face of Washington. Cerna is a broadcast journalist with KCTS-TV, a Latino and native Washingtonian. Reynolds is the host of The Record on KUOW. Faulk is a journalist with the Yakima Herald Republic.
