Latino/a Advocacy Day

Political power starts with YOU!

This program provides advocacy trainings and briefings on policy issues that most impact Latinos in Colorado. Latina/o Advocacy Day or LAD is a daylong advocacy experience that draws statewide participation. We celebrated 12 years of co-convening with partners including COLOR, Protégete, CLLARO (Colorado Latino Leadership, Advocacy and Research Organization), Mi Familia Vota and the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition (CIRC).

Over 200 Latinxs from across Colorado come together in Denver every year. TWO HUNDRED policy advocates swarming the State Capitol to demand change for our communities. An amazing event!

A dynamic group of mostly Latinx youth, come together each year to connect, learn and advocate for and 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.
