Reviews

Praise for If We Want to Win:
"A potent vision of Latine successes, opportunities, and futures."
--Library Journal

"At an inflection point in the United States' demographic destiny, If We Want to Win offers a powerful vision. When we answer this call for more inclusive philanthropy, more investment in education, and greater civic participation, we can help Latine communities unleash their full potential and create a more just, more equal society."
--Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation

"American democracy today is at serious risk from internal forces, and the Latino community and electorate are smack in the middle of the morass. More than ever, we need inspiration from the lessons of real-life victories over the challenges, and bold, candid analyses that challenge our thinking about the future course of our community and country. On these two points, If We Want to Win delivers.
--Arturo Vargas, chief executive officer of NALEO Educational Fund


"If We Want to Win brings together an impressive group of thoughtful and engaged activists whose experiences in the multiple Latine communities provide richly informed and compassionate portrayals. Collectively these essays lay out a plan for the successful political and social inclusion of the fastest growing sector of American society."
--Maria de los Angeles Torres, author and distinguished professor, University of Illinois at Chicago
