Miami, FL June 9
Los Angeles, CA August 29


Empowerment and civic engagement training

As in previous years, the Open Forum is preceded by a two-day long Empowerment and Civic Engagement Training leadership program, which empowers service-oriented grassroots individuals with effective, community-based advocacy tools to tackle local issues and spread the message of leadership, empowerment, and civic engagement within their respective communities.

"NHCOA is multiplying leadership through us, if these 50 some people trained today can reach at least two people, in one or two weeks, we will double. And, in a few more weeks, they will train others and we will multiply again, and so forth."
