Kick off Latino/Hispanic heritage month with The Latino Community Foundation of Colorado! Join us for the sixth annual Telling Our Story Forum on Sunday, September 15. This family-friendly event is built by Latinos for Latinos who want to grow our power locally, regionally and statewide. Civic engagement is for community members of any age, so please bring the whole family from children to grandparents.
This year's Forum, Visión 2020: Latinidad en Colorado will feature leadership stories from across Colorado, interactive sessions for connecting with others in the movement and presentation of the Soul of Leadership (SOL) Award to our friends at the San Luis Valley Immigrant Resource Center who work day in and day out to connect and empower immigrants. We are also honored to welcome strategist David Ayón for the Forum's keynote presentation, speaking to the national landscape and what we can do to expand our work!
The event is from 11 AM to 4:30 PM on Sunday, September 15. Lunch will be served and interpretation and childcare will be available for all attendees. Tickets are on sale now and we offer discounted pricing for youth, older adults, families, and large groups. Limited scholarships are available as well as travel assistance (gas cards, etc.) for individuals and organizations traveling to the event from across the state. Volunteers can also attend the event for free! Learn more about volunteering by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here to add the Forum to your calendar.
