President Obama will host an Hispanic-themed "online roundtable" next week through the auspices of the Yahoo! website search engine.
The event is Sept. 28, a week from today.
From the folks at Yahoo!:
As part of Hispanic Heritage Month, Yahoo! Inc., the premier digital media company, will live-stream the first-ever Hispanic-focused online roundtable with President Barack Obama, giving people the opportunity to submit questions to the president on the issues that are important to them.
Moderated by Jose Siade, Yahoo!'s editor-in-chief for U.S. Hispanic and Latin America, the live roundtable will be webcast from the White House on September 28, and will focus on issues that matter to Hispanics, including the economy, education, health care, and immigration, as well as many other important issues.
Yahoo! will moderate the session and ask questions from Yahoo! users.
AOL Latino / HuffPost Latino Voices and MSN Latino will also participate in the roundtable.
People can submit their questions to President Obama from now until Monday September 26 at 6 p.m. EDT by visiting Yahoo! en Español Respuestas or http://espanol.docs.yahoo.com/pregunta-presidente/
The White House's "Open for Questions With President Obama" or "El Presidente Obama Te Responde" will air live in Spanish and English on Yahoo! en Español and can be watched by visiting http://espanol.docs.yahoo.com/presidente-responde/ or whitehouse.gov/live.
An archived version will be available to Yahoo! viewers worldwide.
