What is Voto Latino Summit?
Voto Latino’s Power Summit is a leadership conference to educate, empower, & engage Latino Millennials to create positive change in their communities. Each Power Summit brings together nearly 300 Latino Millennials to network, sharpen their organizing skills, and learn about tools they can leverage to galvanize their communities into action.
Participants can choose from 3 tracks – advocacy, leadership and media & technology – where they will receive training and hear best practices from elected officials, community activists, grassroots organizers, celebrities, and business leaders. (votolatino.org)
