LEAD engages ways and means of awareness-raising, education, promotion, advocacy, activism, analysis, discussion, critique, and dissemination of educational issues that impact Latinos. One way to employ these, stay motivated, keep up the momentum for current initiatives, and build efforts to create infrastructure, community development, and strengthen support is through events.
Our planned events, including LEAD-sponsored and LEAD-affiliate activities, provide an opportunity for our network members to increase our presence, bring visibility to issues of common concern, and strive to achieve synergy. The core activities of these LEAD events often include education and advocacy via networking, working groups, capacity-building, and reward and encourage collective effort.
Our events provide focus and direction, which help to ensure that our stated purpose is fulfilled.
