Hispanic Access Foundation’s Latino Advocacy Week Events
March 13, 2022 - March 19, 2022
March is here, and Hispanic Access Foundation’s 2nd annual Latino Advocacy Week is coming up in just a couple of weeks! From March 13-19, we hope everyone, Latinos and allies alike, can join us for the empowering and informative events taking place during this important week.
The goal of Latino Advocacy Week is to build capacity and familiarity among Latinos to advocate for themselves, their families, and their community around the issues that impact their daily lives. During this week, various community groups, nonprofits, faith-based organizations, community leaders, and elected officials champion legislation and advocacy efforts that uplift and support Latino communities across the country, leading to a more equitable society. Activities will include advocacy training opportunities, issue-specific workshops, and meetings with elected officials, all of which promote civic engagement in Latino communities across the country, connect Latinos with their elected officials, and provide an opportunity for Latinos to flex their growing electoral power.
