Description

About the Conference

We invite you to join us on Saturday, June 1st at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the 3rd Amplify Conference: Claiming Our Power. We will bring together a broad set of Latinx leaders, Latinx-led community organizations, and power-building groups across Massachusetts to build new relationships, strengthen existing partnerships and develop the Latinx Power Coalition for the Commonwealth. As the Latinx population in Massachusetts continues to grow and drive our economy, Latinx leadership is underrepresented. Bold action and disruptive structural change are crucial to claim our powerand add our voices to decisions impacting the Latinx community. The conference is hosted by Amplify Latinx, The Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy and the Gastón Institute in collaboration with our partner organizations.

What To Expect

The Amplify Conference will convene 400 Latinx leaders across multiple sectors, including political leaders, community organizers, business executives, cultural leaders and the artistic community to recognize our Latinx elected leaders and develop an understanding of the State of the Latinx Community in Massachusetts. Through our keynote speakers, Firestarter storytellers, interactive workshops, and closing social reception, participants will build powerful partnerships and relationships that amplify our work.

During this convening we will begin to:

  • BUILD a sustainable coalition of Latinx leaders and organizations that support our Amplify Latinx mission of increasing Latino civic engagement, leadership representation, and economic opportunity;

  • DEVELOP a diverse leadership pipeline who will disrupt the status quo and advance the priority issues of the Amplify Latinx coalition;

  • IDENTIFY key policy issues for the Massachusetts Latino community that will become part of an Amplify Latinx shared policy agenda for Latino upward mobility.
