ABOUT

It’s more important than ever to stand up for what’s right, but many of us are speaking out for the first time. Together, we can learn how to turn our voices into action.

The UnidosUS Changemakers Summit brings together aspiring activists and community leaders who are committed to advocating for Latinos. After two days of learning and practicing advocacy skills in Washington, DC, the Summit ends with a visit to Capitol Hill to meet with members of Congress.

In an encouraging and collaborative setting, policy experts will give updates on the latest issues affecting Latinos, and you’ll leave with a better understanding of how to advocate for the things that matter to you most.

  • Our Stories, Our Power
    A youth-led storytelling session will give participating youth the resources needed to leverage their personal stories for policy change. Participating youth will craft their personal story as it relates to one of the Policy Training issue areas—education, economic equity, and health policies—and will have the opportunity to leverage their personal advocating story during the meetings with their respective representatives scheduled on Wednesday, March 27. This session will be led by UnidosUS Affiliate El Pueblo Youth Council.
  • Affiliate Leadership Session The Census and Redistricting—Keys to Latino Political Empowerment: Join us for this exclusive conversation for Affiliate leaders to connect as we continue to work towards building our voice and strategies for the 2020 Census and presidential election.

Manso, Director of Policy and Legislative Affairs, NALEO Educational Fund, UnidosUS Affiliates, and other experts in the field will discuss important 2020 Census milestones and what community leaders can do to ensure a fair and accurate count.
  • Networking the Samurai Way
    This interactive workshop will touch upon the elements that will help you build confidence for in-person networking that leads to win-win relationship-building to find long-term champions for you and your organization, including mentors. This workshop will be led by Minué Yoshida, a public speaker and personal coaching expert with the mission of empowering others to learn the skills needed to network the Samurai Way.
  • Policy Training Session
    UnidosUS policy experts will guide attendees through the intricacies of education, economic equity, and health policies that impact our community in a big way. Participants will walk away with a deeper understanding of the issues Latinos care about and how to advocate for these issue with their local representatives during the Hill Visits scheduled for Wednesday, March 27.
