Latino Talent Initiative
The Latino Talent Initiative (LTI) seeks to identify candidates, build a sophisticated resume bank and screen for top talent to serve in Presidential appointments. Our goal is to increase the number of Latinos serving the administration from entry level up to cabinet secretaries and ambassadors.
Latino Talks is our signature anniversary series and celebrates the Latino community’s talents by convening Latino influencers who have excelled in business, science, politics, activism and the arts among other fields. Through an unconventional format of cocktails and conversation, Latino Talks panelists and its audience can examine the growing influence of Latinos in the United States and the intrinsic link between culture and leadership. Past featured guests include: our co-founders Eva Longoria and Henry R. Muñoz III, Orange is the New Black actress and author of new memoir, In The Country We Love Diane Guerrero, Chef José Andrés, and artists like Jencarlos Canela and Fher Olivera and Alex González of Maná.
Latino Leadership Development Program
The Latino Leadership Development Program is a unique training program open to all but specifically aimed at Latinos aspiring to political office. The LLDP was inspired by traveling across the country, hearing from so many Latinos eager to serve their communities as elected officials yet who may be struggling to find a place to start and a network of support.
We take established data and case studies from influential races to create trainings that shed light on the advantages and challenges faced by Latino candidates in various regions and provide training on technical skills such as media training, new digital tactics, and campaign budgeting for the long term.
Money in Politics
As an organization focused on electing Latino candidates to office, we understand the negative impact of a democracy that favors the wealthy. We understand that resources are needed to run successful campaigns and that politics are expensive. We know that, too often, Latino candidates are outspent and outmatched.
The explosion of dark money into politics also means that the voices of voters are being drowned out, and the best candidates aren’t able to get a fair shot.
Our new Money in Politics movement addresses this issue and is an essential next step in building out Latino political infrastructure. We want to engage a national Latino audience with creative digital and media campaigns and with stronger collaborations with other community of color led organizations. Through these efforts, we’ll help ensure Latino voices are heard in this national debate for the first time.
