Latina Appointments Collaborative

HOPE has celebrated 25 years of inspiring, empowering, and engaging Latinas in leadership to strengthen all communities. Thanks to the Next 25 Years fund, HOPE will be able to ensure that Latinas are represented locally in the most potentially  impactful areas through the creation of the Latina Appointments Collaborative.

The goal of the Latina Appointments Collaborative is to increase Latina civic engagement through strategic trainings tailored to the region. By preparing, positioning, and supporting participants to serve in decision-making roles on public boards and commissions at the city and county level throughout California we hope to foster a more representative democracy.

Trainings will uncover the inner workings of the political process, insight into municipal budgets and provide an extensive overview of community issues. Participants will benefit from in-depth personal development workshops such as cultivating a professional identity to relationship building with coaches and key decision makers.
