This groundbreaking event hosted by the Latin American Association addresses critical issues impacting Georgia’s rapidly growing Latino community.
The 2019 State of Latinos Conference will bring together Georgia researchers, practitioners, elected officials, and thought leaders to share ideas and experiences around the topic of Latino civic engagement. The conference will untangle multiple strands of civic engagement and will illuminate relationships among contextual factors such as social trust, education, culture, politics, demographics and socioeconomic disparities.
The Conference will also explore Latino civic engagement as a democratic tool to increase government accountability and transparency. The Conference’s discussions will focus on the effectiveness of Latino civic engagement as a means for developing policies that address the real needs of Georgia Latinos and promote the well-being of all Georgians.
