About the Virtual Conference:
The 5th Annual Amplify Conference – Activating Our Latinx Power is hosted by Amplify Latinx, the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy, and the Gastón Institute, in collaboration with our partner organizations.
This virtual conference will bring together Latinx leaders, community organizations, businesses, and power-building groups from across Massachusetts to strengthen relationships and co-create a Latinx policy blueprint that advances our collective prosperity. The COVID-19 pandemic and the virus of racism have laid bare the socio-economic disparities faced by Black and Latinx communities. Bold action and structural policy and systems change are needed for Latinx upward mobility, and shaping our shared future.
During this conference, you will have the opportunity to help continue developing a Latinx Policy Blueprint for our community and activate the Latinx Power Coalition for the Commonwealth.
