Its official – NALEO Educational Fund has entered the blogosphere!
The launch of our newly redesigned website gives us the opportunity to offer you a deeper look at the scope of our work and provide a space for us to address some of the most pressing issues affecting Latinos and all Americans.
With Latinos now the second largest population group in the nation, the community has definitely put its stamp on our nation’s political and social landscape. As the nation’s leading nonprofit organization that facilitates the full participation of Latinos in the American political process, NALEO Educational Fund is at the forefront of ensuring the continued progress of our community.
Since 1981, NALEO Educational Fund has worked to integrate Latinos into the American political society and enhance the leadership skills of the nation’s more than 6,000 Latino elected and appointed officials. NALEO Educational Fund’s efforts include offering professional development, promoting policies that advance Latinos, and facilitate with their participation in our democracy.
With our new publishing portal – the NALEO Educational Fund Blog – we aim to further our mission by drawing attention to a variety of issues affecting the Latino community today, including: citizenship, education, health, immigration and voting rights.
