About Acuerdos

The Latino Policy Forum has developed a concept to build the policy making and advocacy capacity of Latino organizations and leaders called Acuerdos. (Acuerdo is a Spanish word meaning mutual understanding, agreement, or accord.) Acuerdos have one fundamental and important function: to work together to develop and execute priorities and a common agenda. We do this by making sure that information, policy, and advocacy on specific issues represent the Latino perspective and its community needs.

Acuerdos add value by:
