Latino Partnership

We work to engage the Latino community on conservative causes and garner greater Latino support for our issues and conservative candidates. We encourage the conservative movement to support Latino conservative groups, leaders, candidates, and policies that are welcoming of Latino immigrants.
As such, we are an effective liaison between established conservative groups and the Hispanic community.

Our focus:

  • Education: Conferences and forums focusing on Latinos and conservatism. We publish papers and reports regarding Hispanic support for conservative ideals and causes.
  • Advocacy: We advocate in favor of conservative issues and policies welcoming of immigrants.
  • Grassroots: We work to educate and engage the Latino community regarding conservative values and ideals. We work to build coalitions and the conservative Latino community nationwide.
