2. Enhancing our connections in the community and building bridges with other community organizations.
3. Advocating for bills in the legislature that will enhance our rights, equity, and inclusion.
4. Promoting and bringing attention to issues affecting our community to the wider Democratic Party
5. Creating and promoting educational tools/classes that will assist local Latino/a, Latinx, Meso-American, and South American community members to better understand our local government.
