Cordially invites you to
The New Demography:
the 4th chapter in the great American story
The growth of the Hispanic population in the United States is a unique demographic phenomenon in our country’s history. This historical transformation inaugurates the fourth chapter of the American story. After Birth and Revolution; Civil War and Restoration; and World War and Economic Expansion, the "New Demography" will change the country and will very likely prove decisive in how it remains economically viable. Hispanics are the driving force of the new demography, and their strategic value is only now becoming evident to decision-makers at all levels of society. Our ability, as a country and its people, to think through and implement a sensible and effective approach to our future will decide how successful will the United States be in the decades to come. Latinos at Boston College want to be a part of this national discussion.
