Themed “An American Tribute to Democracy: Inheritance, Resilience, and Promise,” the 2021 Latino inaugural will be “a commemorative and inspirational, all-star tribute to our essential workers during the pandemic, Latino voters who showed up at the polls, and the momentous achievements and historic representation of our community across the nation,” according to the event’s official website.
