The Latino Community Foundation Partners With Univision News To Present The First 2018 Televised California Gubernatorial Forum, Called The "Moment Of Truth," On Thursday, January 25 At 6:00PM (PT)
"The Moment of Truth" will be moderated by Univision's award-winning news anchors Jorge Ramos and Ilia Calderon, who co-anchor "Noticiero Univision" ? Spanish-language media's most important evening news broadcast. Ramos also hosts "Al Punto," Univision's weekly public affairs program, which will air an edited version of the Forum. A wide range of topics will be discussed, such as immigration, jobs and the economy, healthcare, education, climate change, as well as current events.
"There are 7 million eligible Latino voters in California," said Jacqueline Martinez-Garcel. "They represent the largest Latino voting bloc in the country. Engaging them is critical to strengthening our democracy. We are thrilled to partner with Univision and Jorge Ramos to present this opportunity for the candidates to state their positions on the issues that matter most directly to this segment of the population."
"This is a key moment for the candidates," said Lourdes Torres, "and the Forum will provide a front row seat for our viewers to learn where the candidates stand on these critical issues. Univision and the Latino Community Foundation have aligned priorities to inform and empower Latinos and we are thrilled to partner with them for this extraordinary event."
Six candidates will participate: Gavin Newsom (CA Lt. Governor-D); John Chiang (CA, State Treasurer-D); Antonio Villaraigosa (Fmr Los Angeles Mayor-D); John Cox (Attorney, Businessman-R); Delaine Eastin (Fmr state Superintendent of Education-D); Travis Allen (CA Assemblyman-R). The selection criteria for the six participants in the Latino Community Foundation's and Univision's 2018 Gubernatorial Forum was based on the data results from extensive polling conducted at the time of determination, and reasonable time and space available.
The Forum will be held before a live audience in Royce Hall on the historic campus of the University of California, Los Angeles. It has the potential to impact the decisions of millions of Latinos.
