2017 Conference

2017 LAN Legislative Conference

You are cordially invited to the 2017 Latino Action Network’s Annual Legislative Conference. The conference will take place on Saturday, January 28, 2017 at the Robert Treat Hotel Conference Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Admission is FREE and open to all. Registration is required as seats are limited.



Given the current climate created by the election of Donald Trump as the next President of the United States, it is more important than ever that Latinos have a space to meet to make our plans to resist attacks against us and other vulnerable communities.

The LAN Legislative Conference is the largest gathering of Latino community organizers and public policy advocates in the State of New Jersey. Last year's conference was attended by over 250 activists from every corner of the state.

The conference will include a full program, with keynote presentations and dynamic workshops with panels discussing a full array of issues in accordance with our Legislative Agenda for 2017. 

Breakout panels will cover the following subjects:

  • Immigrant Rights
  • Education
  • Health Care
  • Affordable Housing
  • Workers’ Rights
  • Voting Rights
  • Criminal Justice Reform
We will be hosting a variety of panels aimed at supplementing and enhancing our legislative agenda. The panels will focus on immigration, education, health disparities, the state budget process, labor issues and affordable housing. We are asking you consider attend one of the panels based on your legislative priorities.

This event is hosted by the Latino Action Network (LAN) in collaboration with The Latino Institute, Inc., a private, non-profit, charitable organization, and the Latino Coalition, a member organization of the LAN.

We are looking forward to your presence, as we work together to benefit the Latino community.

Pa’lante,

Christian Estevez, President
Latino Action Network
