When Latinos Succeed, We All Succeed

Latinos currently make up 25% of school children and will become a third of the US population by 2050. Yet, educational equity is still out of reach for 5.4 million Latino students. Our nation is dependent on this future workforce that needs increased access and opportunity for an excellent education. We need more Latino education leaders serving as decision makers and advocates to work alongside Latino students and families for their collective empowerment. At Latinos for Education, we are leading a coalition of Latino education leaders to increase access and more equitable pathways for Latino children.

We have a shared responsibility for making sure this is not the cycle that continues for our families and our community.

Amanda Fernández, Founder/CEO

As a first generation college graduate, I’ve seen the impact of having Latino role models first hand, and I’m committed to ensuring that more students see leaders that look like them.

R.D. Leyva, Program Director

In my own experiences, I have had few Latinos to connect with as peers. To achieve progress, we need organizations like Latinos for Education to create accessible networks for Latino leaders in this field.
