Our goal with this summit is to educate, empower, and inspire Latino leaders from across the state by conducting workshops, networking sessions, and bringing in panelists & keynote speakers to motivate attendees and educate participants of policy matters in order to positively impact our communities and continue to pave the way for future leaders.

The summit will provide space to discuss important social issues pertinent to Latinos in the nation and will focus on the extraordinary influence Latinos have to empower those in their communities.
