UnidosUS and the UnidosUS Affiliate Council are excited to host the 2019 Affiliate Leadership Breakfast (ALB) in San Diego, CA on Tuesday, August 6, 2019 as part of the 2019 UnidosUS Annual Conference. The breakfast is a high-level forum on issues of relevance for Affiliate Executive Directors, and their senior leadership and Board members, and provides a dedicated Affiliate-only space to identify ways to strengthen our partnership strategize with other UnidosUS Affiliate Network organizations.

This year’s event will feature two topics:

First, UnidosUS President and CEO Janet Murguía will present the UnidosUS’s 2020 Empowerment Priorities as we prepare to maximize our impact in a potentially watershed election year. We are excited to share this plan, which was informed by Affiliate input received over the past year through the different sessions on UnidosUS’s 50th Anniversary Campaign for Equal Opportunity and the strategy development process.

Second, a robust discussion will follow entitled, Next Level of Advocacy: Is a Sister 501 (c)(4) In Your Future?

The UnidosUS Affiliate Network has shown immense interest in establishing a stronger presence in the advocacy and electoral spheres to enhance the voice of the communities they serve. The thought of “speaking politically” as an organization can be intimidating at first, but we have members of the Affiliate Network that prove it is possible and can have outstanding impact.

In this session, we will discuss why establishing a sister 501 (c)(4) organization is an important next step for Affiliates to take their advocacy footprint to the next level. Affiliate leaders will share their experiences in establishing 501(c)(4) organizations and the opportunities this entity can bring to engage your communities leading up to the 2020 election and beyond. Whether your organization already has a 501(c)(4) or is thinking about forming one in the future, you will walk away with a greater understanding of how a 501(c)(4) can be a powerful tool to strengthen our collective impact and ability to effect change for the Latino community.
