The National Hispanic Institute (NHI) always want to make available opportunities for young people to think critically, share their opinions and beliefs, and wrestle with complex themes related to their future. Specifically, we want them to be adept at responding to challenges and opportunities related to Latino communities throughout the Western hemisphere. This is an example of staff discussions taking place in formulating the theme for the 2015 Great Debates for high school freshmen. We thank NHI alumnus and student at Northwestern University Antonio Jose Vielma for the filming and production. Share your comments and join the conversation.
