Reach out to Hispanic America:

The LULAC Convention is also well attended by major corporations who recognize the importance of reaching out to national Hispanic leaders and influential community members directly. There are opportunities to sponsor workshops and events, to showcase products and recruit Hispanic professionals in the convention exhibit hall. In addition, all proceeds support the dedicated work of LULAC to improve the quality of life for Hispanic Americans.

The LULAC Convention hosts the LULAC Federal Training Institute (FTI), an intensive and structured career development program for government and public sector employees. In partnership with the OPM and other Federal agencies, the Federal Training Institute offers workshops and plenary sessions that enable government employees and other employees to enhance their leadership skills and develop the Executive Core Qualifications required for entry to the Senior Executive Service.

Latinos United for Immigration Reform Town Hall

Latinos United for Immigration Reform Town Hall

On November 6th, 2012, Latino voters made it clear that comprehensive immigration reform was long overdue and that candidates who used anti-immigrant rhetoric would no longer fare well in future elections. Today, more than 11 million undocumented immigrants have incorporated themselves into the social and economic fabric of American culture, but still live in the shadows. A broken immigration system continues to stagnate their full contributions at all levels. Attendees will have the opportunity to come together with diverse stakeholders to discuss past strategies and key messaging points used by advocacy groups.

Latinos Living Healthy Town Hall

Latinos Living Healthy Town Hall

The United States, home to over 50 million people identifying themselves as Latinos, currently spends about $2.6 trillion a year on health care costs, and yet ranks 37th in the world for quality of care. Obesity related ailments account for up to 21% of this price tag. By the year 2030, nearly ½ of all Americans will be 30 or more pounds over a healthy weight, qualifying them as obese. Nearly 40% of Hispanic children and adolescents are overweight and obese, compared to less than 30% of white youth. As the nation’s largest, fastest growing, and most under-insured population, Latinos will bear a substantial burden in realizing their right to a healthy life. This town hall addresses the multiple factors that impact the disparities Latinos face in their health.
