UR MISSION: To promote cultural arts, community media, and civic engagement as a way of building healthy and empowered Latino communities. We envision a Latino community where all people are empowered through knowledge and leadership development to achieve social change that improves their quality of life. We envision neighborhoods where youth are valued and nurtured to become community builders who honor the legacy of activism and continue to carry it forward. We envision neighborhoods where multilingualism is valued, where small businesses are stable, where art and culture are robust, where educational institutions thrive and where local Latino history is documented and celebrated. We envision a Latino community that reaches out — across race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and economic status — to build strong alliances based on a fundamental commitment to achieving equity and social and economic justice.
