Words of Inspiration

“The best way for mainstream organizations to engage Latinos is to partner with local Latino-based organizations, identify issues that resonate locally, and work together to find solutions…. Latinos do not simply mobilize for a movement or a cause. They do [it] to improve their livelihoods and the future of their children.” —Mark Magaña
