Latin@ Advocacy Day
Latina/o Advocacy Day or LAD is a daylong advocacy experience that draws statewide participation. COLOR, CLLARO (Colorado Latino Leadership, Advocacy and Research Organization), Mi Familia Vota and Northern Colorado Dreamers United co-convene this widely recognized public event. Nearly 100 Coloradans, mostly Latin@ youth, come together each year to connect, learn and advocate for and advocate with each other on issues impacting education, immigration, health, civic and reproductive rights, environmental and economic justice. Trainings include legislative briefings on current bills and best practices pertaining to lobby visits. We lift our collective voices and meet with legislators to advocate for the needs of our communities.
