Purpose and Goals
The Latin American Coalition (LAC) Amigos Program is a crucial initiative aimed at engaging community members in supporting the mission and vision of the Latin American Coalition (LAC).This program encourages individuals to actively support and advocate on behalf of LAC, increasing awareness of its mission and programs, building community relationships, and assisting in raising funds for initiatives.
The Coalition envisions a diverse and vibrant North Carolina that welcomes, supports, and respects people of all cultures and backgrounds.
The Latin American Coalition is a community of Hispanics, immigrants, and allies who promote the full and equal participation of all people in the civic, economic, and cultural life of North Carolina through integration, education, celebration, and advocacy.
We provide a pathway to equity and belonging for an inclusive and diverse society.
Opportunities for Amigos:
Join us in celebrating our anniversary in November by participating in our Amigo Volunteer Day. As an amigo, you’ll have the chance to engage in volunteer work across different areas of the coalition. Collaborate closely with our area directors to gain valuable insights into our services and the dedicated staff behind them.
Promote the Latin American Coalition by sharing information about the organization and its services with your network. Encourage others to contribute to LAC through donations, volunteering, or other means of support.
Contribute to the Latin American Coalition by making a financial donation, either as a one-time gift or through ongoing support. Your donations assist LAC in sustaining and enhancing its services, guaranteeing a lasting positive effect on the community.
As an Amigo, it’s essential to amplify the voices of the community served by the nonprofit. This includes sharing stories and perspectives from those directly impacted by the organization’s work.
Promote the program through the nonprofit’s website, social media, and other communication channels to recruit new Amigos. Encourage individuals from diverse backgrounds to participate and provide training and resources to help them understand the experiences of marginalized groups.
Encourage Amigos to connect with one another and create a supportive community. This may involve regular meetings or events where allies can share
experiences and learn from one another.
In summary, the LAC Amigos Program aims to build a stronger, more inclusive community and promote social justice. By engaging allies and providing resources and support, LAC can create a more equitable and welcoming environment for all.
