We are Generation Latino. We live where you live – online.
We are innovative. We are passionate. Our networks harness the energy that will improve our lives and ignite our communities. We will make sure that our decision makers hear our voices. We will speak about the issues that impact our future, our families, our communities, our state, and our country. Generation Latino: We are present. We are power. We are you.
Generation Latino is organizing the collective energy, imagination and creativity of our Colorado Latino community and channeling our ideas into policies that will build a path to better jobs, higher wages, affordable healthcare, accessible education, and immigration reform. These measures secure our individual fortunes and the futures of our families. We are having conversations online so we can quickly identify and respond to issues that affect us. United, our voices will be heard. It’s our mission to give Latinos a voice and engage them at higher rates across the spectrum of civic engagement.
Generation Latino Action: We want to make sure decision makers hear our voice and hold policymakers accountable to better our communities. Our mission is to mobilize and activate young Latinos to make their voices heard at the State House and in Washington. We will make sure young Latinos understand where their elected leaders stand on issues important to them and hold them accountable.
