WHAT WE DO

Latino Advocacy conducts workshops, facilitates group meetings, and supports organizations and groups develop specific planning that allows them to develop policies that advocate for their specific issues and build a grassroots base of support for their campaign. Latino Advocacy utilizes its strong media relations with newspapers and radio programs in Washington State and beyond, as well as social media presence in order to reach a broader audience and to become more effective in its advocacy efforts. Latino Advocacy supports organizations and grassroots groups to organize effectively by conducting workshops, facilitating group meetings, and providing leadership training to up and coming leaders. Although it is not a lobbyist organization, Latino Advocacy organizes grassroots communities to successfully advocate their issues.

Latino Advocacy’s promise is to STRENGTHEN VOICES in oppressed communities.

• Works in the community and understands the issues; will not advocate for issues that are harmful to the Latinx community.

• Takes time to become familiar with organizations and community groups needs, the needs of their members and community in order to provide the best guidance in policy and campaign development.

• Helps empower organizations and grassroots groups by helping them develop the skills to advocate for themselves and those in their community
