About this Event

Boston Nous, Inc and Call for Action Inc. (CFA) are hosting the first ever LatinX LGBTQIA Motivation, Empowerment, Health and Personal Development Conference & Community Leadership Awards to be held in the city of Boston Massachusetts.

The goal of the conference is to bring both providers and consumers together to create a safe space for discussion and awareness between LatinX LGBTQIA consumers and the organizations that serve the community.
