Session 1: Monday, April 26, 2021

California’s Economic Recovery & Beyond

As California finds its path towards an economic recovery, what short term and long term investments are needed to ensure an equitable recovery for the Latino Community? What policy proposals in the California Budget are likely to make the largest impacts for Latinas, for students and for entrepreneurs?  Learn from leading experts about how the California budget will set the course for recovery across the state.

Session 2: Tuesday, April 27, 2021

The State of California's Education

Distance learning has exposed the deep inequities of the educational system for English Language Learners, Low Income and Latino Students, and in general has been an uneven experience for students across the state based on geography and resources. Learn from leading experts as they share insights about how California's Education System is navigating the demands of completing the 2021 school year, while simultaneously developing strategies to support full learning recovery and success. 

Session 3: Wednesday, April 28, 2021

9:00 am - 11:00 am PST

Representation Matters: Boldly investing in Latina Leadership

In California, the Latina population is notably young, entrepreneurial, and resilient. Latinas are the future of the state and the leaders of today, however, California's government has yet to see Latinas ascend to its highest offices and be fairly represented. Learn how important topics such as redistricting and gubernatorial appointments impact Latina Representation and what policy opportunities, such as HOPE's Priority Bill SB702, can do to support Latinas breaking barriers and smashing glass ceilings.

HOPE’s Latina Action Day® Policy Issues Conference Mobilizes Latinas from Across California to Ensure an Equitable Recovery From COVID-19

COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted the Latino community and women in California, and Latinas have borne the brunt of some of its most negative effects on both their health and economic standing, while simultaneously working on the frontlines of the pandemic.  As California looks ahead to recovery from COVID-19, HOPE’s Latina Action Day conference hones in on some of the top issues impacting the wellbeing of Latinas including equitable economic recovery strategies, pathways to closing opportunity gaps in education, and increasing Latina representation in the state’s political offices. Built on the values of representation and advocacy, the three-day conference will convene thought leaders, decision-makers, and experts to discuss these important issues while centering the voices, experiences, and priorities of Latinas. 

Latina Action Day is the only event of its kind in California that centers Latina experiences and priorities in policy discussions.


HOPE® is a non-profit, non-partisan, organization committed to ensuring political and economic parity for Latinas through leadership, advocacy and education to benefit all communities and the status of women.
