Stronger Together | Fuerza Unida

Saturday, September 24, 2016

10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

The Oregon Latino Agenda for Action (OLAA) Summit is our bi-annual convening of Latinos across Oregon. This year’s theme, Stronger Together/ Fuerza Unida, will focus on using analysis of data and research stemming from this year’s OLAA Report. Our goal is to come out of the summit with a set of policy priorities for the 2017 Oregon Latino Agenda for Action, to unify Latino Leaders and organizations behind a Latino platform, and to encourage Latinos to step into civic leadership positions.
