Thank you for attending our Spring 2018 Cafecitos Power Breakfast on the State of Latinos and Race in Massachusetts. We are grateful to E&Y for hosting us in their beautiful space and for welcoming this important conversation. We hope you enjoyed the dialogue with our distinguished speakers about our Latino identity and the intersection with our beautifully mixed mestizo heritage. 
We thank them for joining us, and for their commitment and service to our community in their different capacities. Their stories of perseverance, courage, and strength to stand out and excel as Latino-Americans resonated with all of us in the room. They spoke their truth as they shared their journeys of assimilation with the mainstream culture, as well as their thoughts on overcoming systemic inequality that have shaped our experiences. If you were inspired by the conversation, we invite you to follow the pearls of wisdom they shared with us on Friday morning.

APRIL 6, 2018     ●     8:00 – 10:00 AM     ●     EY Boston

Massachusetts ranks at the top in education, healthcare and the economy. In stark contrast, Latinos in Massachusetts face the steepest socio-economic inequality in the country. The Boston Globe recently featured its Spotlight series about the disparities Blacks face in Massachusetts, yet Latinos also share this unfortunate invisibility and disadvantage across the Commonwealth.

Join us for a town hall style dialogue about Latinos & Race in Massachusetts. Our lively discussion will address the inter-relationship between race and inequality and the major factors that impact wealth creation and inter-generational wealth. Learn about the challenges and opportunities for our community, and how we can use our power to make a difference for underserved Latinos in Massachusetts.

This event is open to all genders.
