National Council of La Raza Congressional Briefing

National Council of La Raza Congressional Briefing
On the New Report: LGBT Acceptance and Support: The Hispanic Perspective.

Countering popular assumptions that Hispanics are unsupportive of the LGBT community, a new report co-released by the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) and Social Science Research Solutions (SSRS) finds that compared to the general U.S. population, Latinos are supportive, if not more supportive, of the LGBT population.

Guest speakers include:
David Dutwin, PhD, Report Author and Vice President, Social Science Research Solutions
Tom Kam, Vice President, Social Justice Programming, Arcus Foundation
Eric Rodriguez, Vice President, Office of Research, Advocacy and Legislation, NCLR
Lourdes Rodriguez-Nogues, President, DignityUSA

Lunch will be served in accordance with House and Senate rules.
