Latino Leadership Institute Celebration
Alumni of UPI’s Latino Leadership Institute recently gathered to celebrate their accomplishments in creating a safe and healthy community. This community event provided an opportunity for over 40 Latino Leadership Institute alumni to reconnect and share their experiences with the whole family. Since the program’s founding in 2012, UPI has offered both an Emerging Leaders course, as well as an Advanced Leadership course through its Latino Leadership Institute to develop the capacity of South Los Angeles residents to advocate and have their voices heard in crucial community policy decisions.
While our program included presentations on public health, immigrant rights, as well as safety and justice, there was also plenty of time for celebration as alumni enjoyed a mariachi band and dessert cart to close the evening. This special evening was made possible by GRoW @ Annenberg, and UPI is so grateful for their support.
