What?

For 2019, LCF will host its most important Latino Policy Summit yet.

This is a monumental year to prepare California’s Latino community for the 2020 Presidential Election and the 2020 Census. As the largest Latino voting bloc in the nation at 7.7 million eligible voters, we have the responsibility to advocate for meaningful change in our state and country. Influencing the outcome of this election is critical and Latinos have the power to do so.

Latinos will also play a pivotal role in ensuring California gets its fair share of representation and funding to meet the growing needs of our state. From Los Angeles and the Bay Area to the rural areas of the Central Valley, let’s make sure all Latinos are ready to be counted in the 2020 Census to secure these rights for our communities and state.

Immediately following the Summit, we will bring the power of our community to the State Capitol by visiting the legislators we elected to represent our interests. After the Legislative Visits, all Summit attendees are invited to re-connect and convene with attendees and members of the Latino Legislative Caucus at the Latino Leadership Reception at Cafeteria 15L at 5 pm.
