Why young Latinos in rural California support Bernie Sanders

In California’s predominantly Spanish-speaking Eastern Coachella Valley, younger Latinos are responding to presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, challenging the narrative that his appeal does not extend beyond white voters. “A lot of youth in the Eastern Coachella Valley see college as not affordable, a shattered dream.  Because of his emphasis on college affordability, Sanders can be that spark for us to regain confidence and make a bigger difference.” Youth reporter Olivia Rodriguez spoke to young people in the community about why they support the Vermont senator’s bid, for Coachella Unincorporated.
