2023 CULTURAL EVENTS CALENDAR

The Latin American Coalition’s (LAC) cultural mission is to create welcoming spaces for people of diverse backgrounds by highlighting the richness and diversity of Latino cultures, supporting local Latino(x) entrepreneurs and artists, and bringing over 25,000 community members together annually. Our events are well known and sought out by all residents of our area.

LAC was founded in 1990, making us the oldest and largest immigrant community-based organization of the region. Our programs assist over 8,000 immigrants per year find a pathway to belonging to an equitable, inclusive, and diverse society through education, cultural celebration, and advocacy.

Your Marketing/Outreach Dollars and Community Impact

In comparison to a private per-profit event, as a 501c3 non-profit, every dollar raised at our events is used to support our community-building programming. One huge advantage is that we have direct access and the trust of the community we serve. We maximize and acknowledge your tax-deductible contributions
