Join Amplify Latinx on Saturday, June 1st at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the 3rd Amplify Conference: Claiming Our Power.

The Amplify Conference will convene 350 Latinx leaders across multiple sectors, including political leaders, community organizers, business executives, cultural leaders and the artistic community to recognize our Latinx elected leaders and develop and understanding of the state of the Latinx community in Massachusetts. Through our keynote speakers, Firestarter storytellers, interactive workshops and networking reception, participants will build powerful partnerships and relationships that amplify our work. During this convening we will begin to:

-Build a sustainable coalition of Latinx leaders and organizations that support our Amplify Latinx misison of increasing Latino civic engagement and leadership representation

-Develop an deploy diverse leaders who will disrupt the status quo and advance the priority issues of the Amplify Latinx coalition

-Identify key policy issues for the Massachusetts Latino community that will become part of an Amplify Latinx policy agenda for Latino upward mobility

Now more than ever, we need Latinx leaders in positions of power. Bold action and disruptive structural change is needed to claim our power and add our voices in decisions impacting the Latinx community. The conference is hosted by Amplify Latinx, The Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy and The Gastón Institute for Latino Community Development and Public Policy in collaboration with our partner organizations.
