Mission 

The Latino Action Network [LAN] is a grassroots organization composed of individuals and organizations committed to engaging in collective action at the local, state and national levels in order to advance the equitable inclusion of the diverse Latino communities in all aspects of United States society.

About LAN 

Founded in 2009, LAN advocates on the issues of greatest importance to the Latino community, including Immigrant Rights, Education, Healthcare, Affordable Housing, Criminal Justice Reform, Voting Rights and Civil Rights.

LAN was founded by a group of Latino leaders from across New Jersey that agreed that the time had come for progressive Latinos to come together to take action against the attacks our community was facing.  Since its inception, LAN has played an important role in influencing legislative redistricting in the state and been a clear voice on the need for diversity on the state’s highest court and marriage equality. 

Our members have testified at public hearings, written opinion pieces for many publications and met with legislators to champion our various causes. We have participated in numerous legal challenges promoting fair housing, equitable health care delivery, and electoral integrity.  The Latino Action Network has promoted quality public education and spoken out against the proliferation of unaccountable charter schools and voucher gimmicks.

The Latino Action Network invites you to learn more about our organization and to connect with other Latinos and our allies that are working hard every day to improve the lives of Latino families.
