The unparalleled 2019 State of Latinos Conference hosted by the Latin American Association will bring together researchers, practitioners, elected officials, thought leaders and other stakeholders from across Georgia to share ideas and experiences around the topic of civic engagement for Latinos, explore the many facets of civic engagement and illuminate new relationships among contextual factors including Social Trust, Education, Culture, Politics, Demographics and Socioeconomic Disparities. 

The 2019 State of Latinos Conference will explore Latino civic engagement as a powerful democratic tool to increase accountability and transparency, a mechanism through which stakeholders can build relationships of trust and understanding and a means for developing policies more likely to address the real needs of the Latino community by tapping directly into the knowledge of citizens.
