Illinois Latino Agenda



Who We Are

The Illinois Latino Agenda is leading with a bold commitment to advocate for the needs of our people as a collective voice true to Latino/a/x cultural values. We believe that as a collective we are powerful and influential, and we’re welcoming new members to join our coalition and give form to a moral voice that will steer our community and center our work.

We’re looking for individuals who have a demonstrated track record of working to improve the quality of life of Latinos/as/x in Illinois and who want to connect with other like-minded leaders. Together we can have a greater impact on improving the social, political, and economic wellbeing of Latinos/as/x in Illinois.
