Workshop to explore minority voting trends

In light of the upcoming presidential election, the Tucson Jewish Community Library, the Black Chamber of Commerce and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will host a workshop, “How Minorities Vote in America,” on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. at the Tucson Jewish Community Center.

We are a nation of immigrants, but each new influx of immigrants, including Jews of various ethnic backgrounds, African-Americans, Irish, Italians, Germans, Chinese and Mexicans, has faced varying degrees of discrimination, says Bob Cohen, Tucson Jewish Community Library head librarian.

Political scientists Eric Lopez and Jay Wendlan of the University of Arizona will present a discussion on voting trends, joined by Lea Marquez Peterson, president and CEO of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and representatives of other minority groups.
