There is nothing more inspiring than seeing a room filled with motivated Latino leaders!

Last week we brought together more than 170 community leaders and advocates in Sacramento for our 3rd annual California Latino Agenda, Sacramento Summit.

The Sacramento Summit, filled the room with shared personal stories, inspiration and newfound connections with leaders from across the field. Senator Ricardo Lara and Jeanette Zanipatin kicked off the morning with a focus on civic engagement and critical Latino bills. Both Jerry Tello and Maria Lemus reminded us to draw from the power of our culture to make a difference in our communities.

Our afternoon keynote speaker Akaya Windwood said that she felt at home. She reminded leaders to focus on living a life of purpose and balance. We ended the day with our incredible youth panel – Abraham, Imelda, and Sandy – who demonstrate that despite the setbacks, our young people are equipped with tremendous resilience and energized to create a better tomorrow.

Gracias to all of our attendees, our inspiring speakers, and our community! Together, we are inspiring action, empowering change, and transforming Latino communities. Thank you to Southwest Airlines for being LCF’s official airline.
