Not long ago, LCF made a promise to invest one million dollars to support Latino children and youth in the Bay Area. Five years later, we have kept true to that promise; invested $2.1M and grown our Children and Youth Initiative from a single program with a cohort of 10 organizations, to a network of 40 community based organizations that spans the Bay Area, Central Coast and Central Valley.
As we developed our investment strategies, LCF created a speaker series Community Conversaciones. Community Conversaciones brings leaders together to learn about and discuss some of the most pressing issues facing the Latino Community. We want to take these conversations online, igniting critical conversations through this blog.
It is our goal that the LCF Blog becomes a forum where knowledge and information can be shared. We will feature guest bloggers who can share their own insights on the future of California’s Latino community. We will focus on solutions to these challenges, always forward thinking– learning from the lessons of our past, and embracing the opportunities of the present– to build a better future for California.
As always, we welcome your responses and look forward to reading your comments!
