Political Salsa

The LIBRE Initiative is partnering with The Puerto Rican Bar Association of Florida, the hosts of the annual Political Salsa. This non-partisan event gives Florida voters — and especially the growing community of Puerto Rican voters — a chance to meet this year’s political candidates face to face. It’s a networking event, an educational opportunity, and a celebration.

There will be a panel of journalists, including Scott Powers with the Orlando Sentinel, Guillermo Hanson with the Osceola Star, Frank Torres with the Orlando Political Observer, Christine Figueroa with La Prensa, and William Diaz with WONQ Radio, the host of “Cara y Cara”.

Florida is now home to more than one million individuals of Puerto Rican heritage, the largest number in any of the 50 states. This will be an important group of voters in this year’s elections, including the presidential election. Residents of Puerto Rico cannot vote in presidential elections, so Puerto Rico voters on the mainland have an important opportunity to provide a voice to the Island. Political Salsa gives these voters a chance to learn more about the candidates, issues, and political parties that will be on the ballot this year.

Tickets are available on the Political Salsa website.
