The roundtable of distinguished panelists will discuss the Italian-American constituency and the upcoming Presidential election.
Some of the questions that the speakers will explore are: Is there an Italian American voting block or have Italian Americans assimilated into mainstream American politics? Do people vote along ethnic, racial, or gender lines? Will women support Hillary Clinton, African Americans support Barack Obama, Hispanics support Bill Richardson, and Italian Americans support Rudolph W. Giuliani?
The conference is presented in conjunction with the NIAF 32nd Anniversary Convention and Gala Weekend. All conferences are free and open to the public. For more information, contact John Marino, 202/939-3115 or email@example.com.
