2015 NCLR Conference

Join The National Council of La Raza at the largest gathering of the nation’s most influential individuals, organizations, institutions, and companies working within the Hispanic community. The 2015 NCLR Conference is sure to follow in the footsteps of years past, “providing a forum for people in the business of social change to learn about ongoing and emerging issues in the community, connect with key community leaders, and generate partnerships with Hispanic community-based organizations.”

The annual conference will take place from July 11 – 14, 2015, and will include cutting-edge workshops addressing critical issues that affect the Latino community, five “meal events,” each with an audience of 2,000, and presentation from speakers of international prominence. Past speakers have included U.S. President Barack Obama; Attorney General Eric Holder; Senator John McCain (R – AZ); Senator Hillary Clinton (D – NY); award-winning author Sandra Cisneros; actress, activist, philanthropist, and NCLR Alma Awards Producer Eva Longoria; CNN special correspondent Soledad O’Brien; and more.

The conference also features special events such as the Helen Rodríguez-Trías Health Award Reception and the NCLR Awards gala. The National Latino Family Expo gives Latino consumers a chance to truly interact with more than 200 brands, and is open to the general public. That, and the promise of star-studded performances by the likes of Victor Manuelle and Tito Puente Jr., guarantee that there will be plenty of entertainment to go around.

About the author:

As Latin é's Editor-in-Chief, Caitlin believes in quality over quantity, doing things right the first time, and humming to herself during difficult tasks. A true Texan at heart, she also believes in the power of cowboy boots, that the stars at night should always be big and bright, and that everything (especially the food) is bigger in Texas. When she's not writing or editing she enjoys curling up to read a good book (or three), going on grand adventures (the more walking involved, the better) with her adoring and adorable husband, bright colors (in clothes, cooking, and everything else), and going barefoot. She likes her food spicy, her music soulful, and her news breaking. You can read more of her work on her website, www.themathom-house.com!
