About Latinos ARE
(Activism, Representation, Education)

Latinos are the largest minority in the USA, with almost 20% of the population. One out of four Americans under the age of 18 is Latino, and they are underrepresented at all levels of the U.S. government, from local school boards to city and county councils to state representatives to the U.S. Congress. In the near future, the U.S. will have a president of Latino heritage. To increase Latino representation, we must encourage and educate our youth to participate in government activities and understand how laws are made and how the government generally works.


Latinos ARE (Activism, Representation, Education), a non-profit organization, is committed to preparing and educating our next generation of Latino Leaders and STEM professionals about the state policy-making process by providing internship opportunities to them in any of the three branches of the state government (executive, legislative, and judiciary). Latinos ARE is also committed to educating elected officials about the Latino culture and its influence so that they can legislate according to their needs.

Finally, Latinos ARE:

  • Family-Focused

  • Faith Oriented

  • Pro Law & Order

  • Hard Workers

  • Entrepreneurs

  • STEM Professionals (Scientists and Engineers)

  • Political

  • The future of this great nation

  • etc, etc, etc.
