President Barack Obama delivers the keynote address at the 2011 NCLR Annual Conference: Embrace Now in which he discusses the important role of the Latino community in the “American family.”  The National Council of La Raza, or NCLR, is a not-for-profit and non-partisan advocacy group that focuses on improving opportunities for Hispanics in the United States. Introduced by NCLR President and CEO Janet Murguía, Barack Obama delivers a captivating speech about national challenges in the light of the recession and ways to deal with issues that have especially affected the Latino community.

In this speech, Barack Obama discusses his view of a road to correcting the US government’s debt load, something he said will not be solved by asking the poor and middle class to bear the burden. Specifically, President Obama discusses the need to reevaluate the American tax system to raise taxes for millionaires, and the need to invest in education.
