The Watson Institute and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies welcomed what Professor Richard Snyder described as a "dream team" of panelists to discuss "Rhode Island's Emerging Latino Leaders." Panelists included Ricardo Lagos, former president of Chile and Brown professor at large, Providence Mayor Angel Taveras, Mayor James Diossa of Central Falls, Dr. Pablo Rodríguez of Latino Public Radio, Ana Cano-Morales of Roger Williams University, and Pawtucket School Committee member Sandra Cano. Each spoke briefly about the experiences that led them to become leaders, the challenges that they have faced, and their advice to future leaders.

The event was live-streamed, and can be viewed here.

The event will be broadcast on Latino Public Radio on Sunday, April 28 with Spanish-language commentary.
