Our Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA) 21st. National Membership Convention will be held in Orlando, FL from August 18-20, 2016. This event will create the space for LCLAA members to engage in trainings that will be of great value to the ground work that LCLAA will be doing to advance the agenda of Latino working families. Our discussion this year will revolve around key priorities requiring greater public awareness, civic participation, and strategies for advancing an agenda for shared prosperity that meets the needs of America’s racial and ethnic minority groups in order to create unity. We expect approximately 500 Latino labor leaders, community activists, academics, researchers, and students from all over the United States interested in advancing the economic, social and political future of the Latino community. Do not miss the great opportunity to have your organization represented at our National Convention.
