Washington State, Vancouver (PRWEB) November 06, 2015 -- The community of Washington State has expressed concern over the recent unnecessary use of excessive police force directed towards minority communities. In addition, the community is concerned over increasing efforts to carve out voting districts in a manner that dilutes the Latino voting power. In an effort to address issues that impact the Latino community, leaders from LULAC will visit Washington State to hold meetings with law enforcement and elected officials. The leaders will also announce the newly created councils in Washington State and how the community can get involved.
