Demographer Annabel R. Kirschner, a WSU professor, will discuss recent trends in Washington’s Hispanic population at the Feb. 17 meeting of the WSU Tri-Cities Latino Outreach Collaborative.

Open to the public, the session begins at 10 a.m. in Room 210 of the West Building at the Tri-Cities campus in north Richland.

In her presentation, Kirschner, a noted demographer who is author of the “Washington Counts in the 21st Century” publications, will discuss trends in the growth, income and education of Washington’s Hispanic population over the past 15 years.
