Civic Leadership & Advocacy
We prepare Latino community members to be leaders and advocates for social change in Oregon.
We believe in community self-determination – and our programs train and equip youth and adults to be leaders and advocates on issues that matter. Civic leadership and engagement are integrated into all of our programs.
We run leadership programs for grassroots leaders and established community leaders, as well as ESL programs for Spanish speakers. We also engage in advocacy to remove systemic barriers and build a positive, thriving community.
- Unid@s for Oregon is a statewide leadership development program. The unique framework fosters cohesion, trust, and relationships among Latino leaders to build capacity in local communities for a unified change movement.
- Academia de Líderes equips emerging grassroots latino leaders with the tools to be agents of change and advocate for our community’s best interests.
- Bienvenidos ESL offers free English classes in Multnomah County for Spanish speakers of various levels.
