Latino Victory is packing its pop-up banners and posters and driving to Philadelphia to partake in the Democratic National Convention. While the majority of our time is spent working hard to ensure that Latinos are elected to office and to empower the Latino community, we also take time to host and attend events designed to offer a space for open dialogue and networking.

When we convene in Philadelphia—chilling out, maxing, relaxing, all cool*—Latino Victory will join giant Google, the German Marshall Fund and Latinos Unidos, an all-star list of Latino organizations, to host a variety of star-studded panels, receptions and a concert.

We are equally excited about all of the Latino events that will be showcased at the convention, and we would like to share with you a detailed list so that you can participate and make the most of this historic convention.

Of note, we want to highlight the Latinos Unidos Celebration, which is a large-scale event organized by top Latino organizations and promises a spectacular night of unity lead by Los Lobos and appearances by special guests. We hope you will gather along with us on this night to uplift the Latino community and ensure that Latino issues are showcased in this Convention.

Please be on the lookout on Latino Victory’s Facebook and Twitter posts, as we plan to update this events list as soon as we find the next amazing event. Also, if you are hosting an event, please send us the details and we will run it on our weekly social media updates.

¡Hasta pronto!
