Deconstructing the Ethnic Vote on Community Radio in Colorado

In the shadow of the Pepsi Center (site of the Democratic National Convention) – inside what’s called “The Big Tent” – New York Community Media Alliance and Feet in Two Worlds hosted a panel discussion on the role of ethnic voters in this year’s election.

The discussion was moderated by John Rudolph, Executive Producer of Feet in Two Worlds. The panel guests included Jehangir Khattack, a U.S.-Pakistani reporter with Defense Journal, and Dawn; Raymond Dean Jones, Political Columnist, Denver Urban Spectrum; Lotus Chau, Chief Reporter, Sing Tao Daily; and Pilar Marrero, Senior Political Writer and Columnist, La Opinion.

The panel explored the concerns of ethnic voters, their shifting political allegiances, their hopes and fears about the election, and most importantly: Do ethnic voters connect to the Democratic candidate?
