  • At the end of this century, the majority of people in the US will trace their family origins to Latin America instead of Europe?
  • Latinxs are currently contributing over 80% of the growth of the population in the state of Missouri and over 60% of the growth in the state of Kansas?
  • Given those demographic trends, you’d make yourself more professionally effective and competitive—whatever your race, ethnicity or major may be—if you learn about Latin America and Latinxs in the US?
