Affordable housing and a reduction of foreclosures- what does that mean to marketers?

   By Cristy Clavijo-Kish
As I get ready to attend the 2011 National Council of La Raza Family Expo and Convention in DC this weekend- a major focus for the organization is ensuring that Latinos nationally do not get pushed out of the middle class due primarily to losing their homes via ongoing foreclosure and a lack of affordable housing. The debate surely will be a lively one during the session Economy Town Hall: “Giving Up the Middle Class – Not so Fast!” You can watch it via live streaming and understand the issues more clearly.

So what does that have to do with marketers targeting the Hispanic community? I don’t know yet, but take the opportunity to understand the issue and perhaps a community initiative idea will develop.

I’ll have more soon…
