Social media among state Latinos has been buzzing again, responding to the release of the lineup for the 2013-2014 season of the popular Connecticut Forum series, which offers live, unscripted panel discussions with renowned experts and celebrities. Many Latinos are expressing their disappointment, yet once again, that in recent years apparently the Forum has not made a concerted effort to be more inclusive in their panelists, noting that Latino panelists don’t have to just speak about Latino issues to share their views on the numerous topics the Forum panels has covered over the years.
A sampling of Facebook conversations on the topic:
Another season of CT Forum and guess what? Los Latinos continuan sin ser invitados. What’s up with the organizers? I respect the participants but there’s got to be 1 latino in the US worthy of being a panelist every once in a while. I shall continue to rant and rave.
