Mentoring a New Generation-Claudia Williams

 

Every two years, LCLAA historically gathers the entire membership at its convention. Its purpose is to serve as the launch pad to discuss the issues that the labor movement and Latino working families are facing.

Our 2012 convention – to be held in Orlando, FL at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort from July 25 – 28, 2012 – promises to be a bellwether for the Latino vote and an opportunity to promote the needs of our community. As part of its 40th Celebration, LCLAA will host a series of events including a women’s leadership luncheon, the Montemayor-Barraza Awards Gala as well as important workshops and discussions around key priorities for Latinos and labor, such as: immigration, Jobs and the Economy, Education, Green Jobs and Climate Change, Issues affecting Latino Workers, Young Workers  and most important the 2012 Elections focusing on the Latino Vote and how to fight back voter suppression laws affecting our community. This premiere convention will highlight the valuable work that LCLAA has done over the years and establish the benchmark for its future work by bringing together important Latino and labor leaders; local, state and national political figures; and a diverse coalition of non-profits, think-tanks and community-service organizations to create LCLAA’s agenda for the next years.
