2018 BIENNIAL SUMMIT
FUERZA EN COMUNIDAD | STRENGTH IN COMMUNITY
Saturday, September 29, 2018
9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Keynote Speaker Cesar Vargas, Esq.
OLAA is holding its Fifth Biennial Summit on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at Portland State University. The Summit will be used as a platform to establish strategic priorities for meeting the overarching needs of the growing number of Latino Oregonians.
This year’s theme, Fuerza en Comunidad (Strength in Community), will be used to convene 100 individuals from leading Latino organizations, businesses, elected officials, and public servants to both recommit to a united Oregon Latinx platform for leading organizations, and leaders to utilize in their community building, public educations, advocacy, and engagement work. This will also support OLAA’s work to enable these organizations to build a pipeline activating community leaders to become civically engaged and give others the support to step into civic leadership roles in their communities. OLAA will also present the 2018 Edition OLAA Report; this year we are adding a case comparison to highlight how strengthening the inclusion and engagement of Latino students and parents might improve educational outcome.
