The mission of the Latino Policy Forum is to build the power, influence, and leadership of the Latino community through collective action to transform public policies that ensure the well-being of its community and society as a whole. The Forum works to improve education outcomes for Latino children, address housing issues, advance an agenda on immigration reform and immigrant integration, and engage in strengthening the capacity of the Latino community. 

The Multicultural Leadership Academy provides a series of leadership workshops to community, policy, arts, and culture leaders committed to social change, policy impact, or community improvement throughout Illinois.
