National Latino Advocacy Summit

  • National Latino Advocacy Summit

The Department of Commerce Office of Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships, in partnership with Hispanic Access, will host an in-person National Latino Advocacy Summit in Washington, D.C., aimed at empowering the Latino community and building the capacity and familiarity among Latinos to advocate for themselves, their families, and their community. Our objective is to celebrate important achievements in various Latino communities across America by addressing gaps in representation, knowledge, and access to key opportunities and to amplify Commerce and whole-of-government resources on business, workforce development, entrepreneurship, data and innovation, and climate resilience work.

The goal of the summit is to:

  • Seat at the Table & Center of the Conversation — Provide our Latino communities in urban, rural, and suburban areas with the opportunity to engage face-to-face with program leaders from across the federal government to share their community's most pressing concerns and needs. 
  • Celebrate, Empower, & Include – The Latino Advocacy Summit aims to educate, connect, and celebrate opportunities for Latino communities nationwide. Together, Hispanic Access and Commerce bureaus, alongside federal agencies, will showcase various programs, resources, technical assistance, training, and more tailored for our communities.
  • Foster Impactful Partnerships – Provide tangible opportunities for Latino organizations to actively engage in important Administration initiatives in their communities, including policy implementation and program efforts that are top priorities for their communities, the Commerce Department, and across the federal government.

Event Details:

  • When:   Tuesday, May 21, 2024, from 10 am to 4 pm
  • Where:  Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Ave NW, Washington, D.C., 20230
