NBC News. "Today" will take a look at Hispanic America in a special
week-long series, "We The People" beginning Monday, June 15. The series

next fifty years. She will talk to Dr. Juan Andrade of the US Hispanic
Leadership Institute about the impact of the population surge and how the
2010 Census results affect every American. On Tuesday, CNBC's Carl
Quintanilla explores the challenges of families torn apart by immigration.
He will talk to two families in which the children are living separately
from one or both parents because of deportation. Also on Tuesday,
Telemundo's Maria Celeste Arrars and Dr. Nancy Snyderman report on breast
cancer, which has become one of the leading causes of death for Hispanic
women. They will take a look at available healthcare as well as grassroots
efforts to improve prevention.
Continuing on Wednesday, Miguel Almaguer will discuss the bilingual divide
across the country and the ongoing debate on how the school systems are
meeting the challenge. On Thursday, "Today" will examine the Hispanic
influence on America's pop culture. Kerry Sanders will take a look at the
impact Hispanic-Americans have made in music, movies and cuisine. On
Friday, CNBC's Michelle Caruso-Cabrera will profile five trailblazing
Hispanic women: Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, entrepreneur Linda Alvarado,
astronaut Ellen Ochoa, WNBA player Diana Taurasi, and ballet dancer Paloma
Additionally throughout the week, "Today" will feature notable and
up-and-coming local chefs including Jose Garces (Philadelphia) , Marcela
Valladolid (San Diego), and Denisse Oller (New York City).
The series will be featured online at WeThePeople.todayshow.com, where

stories they covered. Viewers are encouraged to log on to find additional
