Amplify Conference 2018



March 10, 2018   |   Boston, MA

Egan Research Center in the Raytheon Auditorium, Northeastern University


On behalf of the Latina Circle team, thank you for joining us on Saturday, March 10 at the Egan Research Center at Northeastern University for the Amplify Conference. The conference convened over 100 leaders and many of our partner organizations to address the most pressing issues affecting the state’s Latinx community and foster the relationships to table these issues collectively. The conference was the second convening of the new Amplify Latinx Initiative, a non-partisan, collaborative movement aimed at advancing the next generation of civically engaged and empowered Latino leaders.

A very special thank you to Northeastern’s Latino/a Student Cultural Center for hosting us, and to our Advisory Board, Steering Committee, Sponsors, Partners, Speakers, and Volunteers, without whom we could not have made this conference and the Amplify Latinx initiative possible. Your dedication and passion are living proof that AMPLIFY LATINX will leave a mark in Massachusetts and beyond.
