Latinxs and Hispanics have been ignored in many conversations. However, that has changed. GALEO understands the need to uplift Latinxs and Hispanics and give them a platform for their powerful voices. Our Power Breakfast will be held on April 28, 2023. Additionally, sponsors are recognized within the program and can have ad space based on the sponsorship.

Georgia Keynote Speaker

Jason Esteves is the Georgia State Senator for District 6 and is focused on tackling issues that impact our families, especially public education, healthcare, housing, and economic opportunity. He was sworn in on January 9, 2023, and serves on the following Senate Committees: Children and Families, Agriculture and Consumer Affairs, Finance, State and Local Governmental Operations, and Interstate Cooperation.
He is a former at-large representative and Board Chair of the Atlanta Public Schools Board of Education. In 2013, he became the first Latino elected to a school board in Georgia and has focused his efforts on promoting equity and improving the financial outlook of the school system. In November 2021, Jason was re-elected to his third term on the Board with 62% of the vote.
Under Jason’s leadership, APS has attained its highest graduation rate to date (83.1%), provided over $100 million in staff pay increases and stipends, and increased APS’s fund balance to its highest levels while providing more money directly to school sites. Jason helped ensure that APS stepped up to address the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic–APS distributed hundreds of thousands of meals to families and provided every student with a laptop and, if needed, an internet hotspot. APS followed scientific guidance on masks, testing, and school re-opening despite pressure from Governor Kemp.
Jason serves as Vice President at Equifax Inc., where he leads the handling of regulatory matters, risk mitigation, and sensitive disputes and investigations for the company. He was a litigation associate at the law firm of McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP (now Dentons US LLP) after graduating from Emory University School of Law.
