This is ITT's first live show of 2020 from Las Vegas, NV! Maria and Julio travel to Horn Theater at the College of Southern Nevada to discuss the POC vote. For Part 1 of this show, they’re joined by Astrid Silva, Director of Dream Big Nevada and Ruben Navarrette Jr., Nationally Syndicated Columnist to discuss the role of immigrant rights and the impact of the POC vote in the upcoming Nevada primaries. On February 22, the Nevada caucus will become the first time this electoral season where voters of color are the majority. In 2016, 19 percent of Nevada’s caucus-goers were Latinx, 13 percent were black and four percent were Asian.
Stay tuned for Part 2 of this show, dropping this Friday, as Bethany Khan, Director of Communications & Digital Strategy of Culinary Workers Union Local 226, joins our guests to discuss labor rights. And check your feeds for a special ITT Bonus where you can listen to a live Mariachi band performance who opened our show!
