The Hispanic Community in Oklahoma

There are more than 51,000,000 Hispanics in the United States, and almost half of them are eligible voters. That's 11% of the voting population. About 332,000 Hispanics reside in Oklahoma, and although they are a small voting bloc, their impact on Oklahoma's economy and culture is unmistakable. Joining us to talk about the rise of Hispanics in Oklahoma are: Ron J. Jackson, Jr., staff reporter for Oklahoma Watch, and Giovanni Perry, member of the League of United Latin American Citizens.

DREAMers Mobilizing Hispanics

As the largest minority in the United States, the Hispanic vote is coveted by both the Republican and Democratic parties, especially in the face of immigration issues. But Hispanics aren't just waiting for the parties to reach them; rather, the youth of Oklahoma's Hispanic communities are becoming increasingly involved in politics, providing a bridge between the national stage and their fellow immigrants.

On this episode of the ONR, voters have been urged to 'get out the vote,' and some are doing so earlier than others as early voting grows in popularity. But it's having a profound impact on the campaign season and it's length. Campaign season also means campaign speeches and ads. We take a look at the world of political operatives and their role in the world of politics. One of the groups trying to be reached by those campaign messages this year? Hispanics. They now are the largest minority in the United States, and as such are a strong voting block. In our Oklahoma Forum excerpt, we discuss the Latino community and voting. Then our reporter Cathy Tatom visits 'Little Mexico' in Heavener, Oklahoma, to see the impact of a new Latino population in the town. Plus, business news, lessons from the Dust Bowl, and silo art projects, on this ONR.

On this week's ONR, schools across the country are growing more diverse, and it's causing unique problems for some Oklahoma educators. Clean energy abounds in the Sooner state, or it's trying to. Lawmakers and leaders continue to push for compressed natural gas vehicles, and while Oklahoma is eighth in the country for wind energy production, the loss of a tax credit could leave a booming industry blowing in the wind. Out of the ashes of the state's recent wildfires, communities come together to help students left homeless from the flames, and one program is helping rural residents better fireproof vulnerable houses. Plus, a trip to Tulsa's historic Greenwood District, an exploration of a tribe's history, and a look at the high-flying women of the Museum of the 99's on this ONR.
