Some examples of what Council 47013 has accomplished are voter registration drives, Ally Financial Literacy training, DACA/DAPA and Secure Communities workshops, sponsored a Latino Leadership and Civic engagement workshop, established a youth council, developed an agreement with City of Vancouver Police Department, hosted a Regional Women’s Summit, Regional Youth Conference, sponsored a county-wide Latino youth conference, and much more.
