Voto Latino Power Summit Comes To Miami
Hispanics are the largest and youngest minority group in the United States, according to Pew Research.
This caught the attention of Voto Latino, a nonpartisan organization that will host the first power summit for 300 Latino millennials in Miami.
The leadership conference plans to engage millennials to create a positive impact in their community. Advocacy, leadership and technology are the main tracks that participants will hear about and receive training on.
For its 10th anniversary, Voto Latino decided to host their fourth power summit in four different cities across the country, making Miami their second destination.
The event will be held at Florida International University with speakers like co-chair of the Voto Latino Artist Coalition Wilmer Valderrama and co-founder Rosario Dawson.
FIU’s Student Government Association also got involved by sponsoring 100 students attending the conference.
Beside the workshops, millennials can participate in a technology contest where they can present a project which solves a problem in their community.
The 10 to 15 best projects will receive grants from Voto Latino.
The Power Summit will be June 13 and 14 in FIU’s Modesto Maidique Campus. It will later head to San Antonio, Texas, and San Jose, California.
