If We Want to Win
is a collection of essays that adds Latine voices to public discourse not only on the hot-button issues of our times but to point out how our democracy can move ahead stronger and better. The authors relate their personal stories and their expertise in such fields as virtually eliminating juvenile incarceration, transit and environmental planning, women’s rights, social and racial justice, and leveraging diaspora influence to lift Latin America. In doing so, these thought leaders chip away at stereotypes about Latines, just as ever more minority candidates run for office, reflecting our nation’s move toward becoming majority-minority. This book inspires activism and invites community leaders to shape their own narratives and work for a brighter future for the United States and the Americas.
