About the Conference

You're invited to join us for the 4th Annual Amplify Conference - Nuestro Impacto: Be Counted, Be Heard hosted by Amplify Latinx, The Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy and the Gastón Institute in collaboration with our partner organizations. We will bring together a diverse group of Latinx leaders, Latinx-led community organizations, and power-building groups across Massachusetts to build new relationships and strengthen existing partnerships. You will have the opportunity to shape a Latino policy agenda and build our Latinx Power Coalition for the Commonwealth. As the Latinx population in Massachusetts continues to grow and drive our economy, Latinos remain significantly underrepresented in decision-making and influential leadership roles. Bold action and structural change are needed to be counted and be heard in decision-making tables.

What To Expect

The Amplify Conference will convene over 350 Latinx leaders across multiple sectors, including political leaders, community organizers, business executives, cultural leaders and the artistic community to recognize our Latinx leaders and develop an understanding of the State of the Latinx Community in Massachusetts. Through our keynote speakers, Firestarter storytellers, interactive workshops, and networking reception, you will build powerful partnerships and relationships that amplify our work.

During this convening you will help us:

  • BUILD a 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 challenge 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.
