This year’s conference features an opportunity expo as well as professional development workshops on political action, housing, employment, health, immigration, Latina entrepreneurship and will highlight women’s programs.
A special focus of this year’s conference is political influence and opportunity—this topic will be very very important to Latinas throughout the United States, as we look towards the election 2016.
Latinas have made tremendous strides in holding positions of influence within American society and are the key decision makers for their families when it comes to education, investing, health, purchasing and community service. Conference participants will discuss strategies to strengthen Latino families by empowering Hispanic women with the opportunities and skills for success.
The mission of the LULAC National Commission for Women is to raise the consciousness and build the capacity of Latinas of all ages throughout the country. The commission seeks to enhance the ability and opportunity for Latinas to become leaders and agents for change for the betterment of their communities and their families through education, economic development, political empowerment, leadership development, health care and women’s rights.
In addition to the LULAC National Women’s Conference the commission will host the women’s luncheon and high tea at the 2016 LULAC National Convention in Washington, DC.
