Advocacy & Culture

Addressing the social justice issues facing our community.

We believe that our Beloved Community can effectively address the profound issues facing our world through civic involvement, grassroots organizing, cultural sharing and by building multi-racial unity. As a hub for the Latino/a community, El Centro de la Raza works to empower our community with a passionate commitment to equity and culture. We work to address systemic issues of race, poverty, immigration, affordable housing, education, and other social injustices. El Centro de la Raza amplifies the voices of those who have been historically silenced to raise awareness and to challenge oppressive structures and policies. Collective advocacy allows us to serve as a beacon of hope for a more inclusive and just society.
