Every year decisions about laws are made, and the VACOLAO helps educate people on the laws and how they are changing and what the impact on the Latino community will be.

New call-to-action

The Virginia Latino Leaders Council (VLCC) is an organization of Latino leaders that push for involvement in the political system.  The VLCC encourages the community to participate in civic matters including voting for candidates who will received endorsement from the Latino community.

Some of the key issues Amberman is focused on include trying to enhance communication between all communities, encouraging Latino youth to be proud of their heritage and erasing fear-based Latino stereotypes.

Beatriz welcomes anyone who wants to become involved in having an impact on the Latino community to contact VACOLAO and get engaged with them.
