SERVICES

Policy, Advocacy and Organizing Development

Organizations and grassroots groups require long term planning that addresses the root causes of poverty, inequality, racism, classicism, and gender inequality and learning how a balance of public policy and grassroots organizing can contribute to address and ultimately solving these issues. Organizations and groups also require consistent growth and progress in order to satisfy its mission and stakeholder population changes. At Latino Advocacy, we help you find the right tools to help develop your staff, membership, and ultimately your organization or group through public policy planning and development as well as long term advocacy and organizing strategies to continue providing services and achieve your mission.
