Oak Hall, Room 267
Presented by Juhem Navarro-Rivera, Public Religion Research Institute Research Associate and POLS Ph.D. candidate
How do the religious and cultural values of the growing Hispanic community in America affect their political priorities and attitudes? At this session, Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) will release its 2013 Hispanic Values Survey, a new national survey of 1,500 Hispanic Americans supplemented with in-depth focus groups in three states. The study paints a detailed portrait of this growing and politically important group, highlighting differences between Catholics, Protestants and the religiously unaffiliated, and examining how complexities in the Hispanic American community provide opportunities and challenges for both political parties in a post-immigration reform context.
