The Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles
The dual mission of The Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles is to garner greater Latino support for conservative causes and candidates, and at the same time, to encourage the conservative movement to support Latino conservative groups, leaders, and candidates, as well as policies that are welcoming of Latino immigrants. In this regard, it seeks to become an effective liaison between established conservative groups and the Hispanic community.
What We Do…
- Education: The Latino Partnership hosts conferences and forums focusing on Latinos and conservatism. It also publishes papers and reports regarding Hispanic support for conservative ideals and causes.
- Advocacy: The Latino Partnership advocates and lobbies Congress and the Administration in favor of conservative issues as well as policies that are welcoming of immigrants, and has also advocated on the state level for conservative led reforms such as the 2011 guest worker program passed in Utah, as well as spearheading similar efforts in Texas and other states.
- Grassroots Campaigning: The Latino Partnership works within the Latino community to support conservative candidates who favor immigration reform and for Latino candidates who are committed to fundamental conservative values and ideals. It was highly active in promoting conservative Latino turnout in California and elsewhere for the 2010 Congressional elections, and is working to build coalitions in critical swing states for the 2012 Presidential contest.
