We are excited to announce our third National Advocacy Weekend (NAW), which will be held on April 19-21, in Washington, D.C.
Over the course of three days, Latina Advocacy Network (LAN) activists will participate in advanced advocacy, campaign and lobbying trainings, as well as meet with their Congressional representatives. National Advocacy Weekend is a space for activists to network and connect with Latinas and Latinos from across the nation in an environment conducive to fostering national Latina movement-building.
At this year’s NAW, we will have the participation of over 20 Latina/o activists from over 9 states. One of the highlights of the weekend will be a breakfast on Tuesday at the Longworth House Office Building, which will be attended by Tina Tchen, Executive Director of the White House Council for Women and Girls and various Latina congressional staffers.
For more information on National Advocacy Weekend, or to find out more about our Latina Advocacy Networks please contact Maria Elena at firstname.lastname@example.org.
