The Youngest Texans: Population Projections, Implications, and Opportunities

WHEN
January 19, 2019 at 12pm - 1:30pm
WHERE
Members Lounge | Texas State Capitol

It is projected that by 2022, Latinos will be the largest population group in Texas. Already, Latino children make up about half of the 7.5 million children currently residing in the State. To ensure the success of the state’s future workforce, policymakers will need to meet the needs of a rapidly changing population. In particular, policymakers have the opportunity to advance a vision and policy priorities to buffer against adverse experiences, such as natural disaster and poverty, and build a pathway towards the healthy physical, social, and educational development of the state’s youngest children. In this convening, participants will learn about the demographic shifts of this young group of children and an overview of how policy focused on building resiliency in the earliest years is a meaningful investment in the future of the state.
