2023 Latino Legislative Day
For the last 16 years, the success of the Latino Civic Alliance is serving our communities, and believe that working together creates positive change. We advocate for local leadership that improves our communities and builds strong leaders and meaningful partnerships throughout the state. We believe in our youth that they can achieve their life goals and keeping families by investing resources to support educational, leadership, and career paths to accomplish livable wages. As subject experts in all industries, we must initiate and lead transparent dialogue to create successful solutions. We are dedicated to ensuring public officials and agencies serving Latinos believe in equity and will support policies that benefit Latino communities. Latinos contribute billions of dollars to the Washington State economy which signifies that Latinos impact the future of this State.
