State Leads for Changemakers Summit 2020
     

 

The UnidosUS Changemakers Summit is taking place on March 24 - 25, 2020. The Summit's main purpose is to engage with the new congressional delegation to advocate for issues important to the Latino community while building capacity among the Affiliate network. Your role as a state lead is at the center of this events as its success depends on the quality of meetings we have with our elected officials. Serving as State Lead is an excellent way to strengthen and leverage your leadership skills, connect with colleagues from your state, and be an advocate for your organization and the Latino community. We need to have a strong presence in Washington to hold policymakers accountable to their actions. This event provides a unique opportunity to make our voices heard on Capitol Hill, and to leverage the presence of over 100 Latino organizations from 30 states and speak with a unified voice. 

 

 Why Serve as a State Lead?

 

Affiliate representatives that serve as State Leads can elevate this leadership experience in future applications for the Affiliate of the Year recognition. Affiliate leaders with this experience are often tapped for speaking opportunities at future UnidosUS convenings and are regarded by their Affiliate peers.  

 

 Who Can be a State Lead?

 

Any person registered for the Policy and Community Action session can volunteer to serve as State Lead. We especially encourage Leaders who are detail oriented, enthusiastic about working with their peers, and who seek an opportunity to strengthen their advocacy skills. Even if this is your first time conducting Legislative visits, UnidosUS will provide training and support to prepare you. 

 What does the State Lead do?

 

Before joining us in Washington DC, UnidosUS's policy and advocacy staff will provide virtual training and support to prepare the State Leads. With support and training from UnidosUS, the State Lead will work with other members of their state's delegation to lead and schedule meetings with legislative representatives of their state. UnidosUS staff will coordinate connections between the State Leads and other registrants from their state and will be available to assist.

At the Changemakers Summit,UnidosUS will provide issue briefings and resources to prepare participants for legislative visits.The State Leads work collaboratively with UnidosUS to elevate a unified voice on behalf of the Latino community.
