This diverse and dynamic group of sixteen young activists will begin their sisterhood journey on Saturday, March 15th with a three day Retreat in the Santa Cruz hills. On April 2nd these young leaders will participate in Sacramento advocacy efforts during HOPE’s Latina Action Day conference. The ELLA class will participate in programming through HOPE’s Leadership Institute (HLI Class of 2013) and the Youth Leadership Through Literacy Program (YLTLP Class of 2013) to further educate their fellow legislators on issues and bills benefitting the Latino/a community.
We look forward to connecting our ELLA class with our outstanding network of Latina leaders. We hope you will join us at future LCSV events!
