A Virtual California Public Policy Conference
April 26, 27 & 28, 9:00am -10:45am PST
As we recover and rebuild from COVID-19, Latina voices must be heard! Latina Action Day® is the only advocacy day that centers the voices and experiences of Latinas at statewide policy-making tables. Over the course of three days we'll host action-oriented conversations addressing economic recovery strategies, closing opportunity gaps in education, and increasing Latina representation in the state’s political offices.
Join us for virtual advocacy opportunities that complement each of our sessions to make your voices heard and let decision-makers know what policies support the economic and political parity of Latinas!

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.
