Sponsored by Kappa Delta Chi Sorority, Inc. at The University of Texas at Austin. Kappa Delta Chi prides itself on producing, enhancing, and cultivating leadership. We are hosting a LFSSM to raise awareness throughout campus about current issues affecting the Latino community both at-large and on campus by creating dialogue between students and faculty members. This year’s theme for LFSSM is “Latinos de Impacto: The political impact of the Latino vote.” Low voter turnout has long been an issue for the Latino community. Voter turnout continues to lessen despite the fact that Latinos are an exponentially growing population in the United States. The numbers alone indicate the great possibilities that could come if Latinos were more politically active. The purpose of this year’s event is to encourage an increased involvement in the political process.
