Congressional briefing addresses the “generational divide”
Representatives of the UCLA-USC Latinos & Economic Security Project, including Chon A. Noriega, CSRC director, delivered a congressional briefing on July 7 in Washington, DC. Titled “Reframing the Generational Divide: Baby Boomers vs. Young Latinos,” the briefing addressed the potential economic, social, and political impact of our nation’s rapidly growing population of young Latinos and aging baby boomers. The project is a collaborative effort of the UCLA Center for Policy Research on Aging, the USC Ethel Percy Andrus Gerontology Center, and the CSRC, in partnership with the National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA), the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO), and the National Council of La Raza (NCLR). A video of the briefing is available online, and more details about the meeting can be read on the Hispanic PR Blog and at the website of Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard, who co-hosted the event with the Congressional Hispanic Congress.
