About Mission Talk
Mission Talk, initiated in the year 2016 with a gathering of over one hundred young Latin@ leaders from all over the state of Florida. They met in the city of Orlando to discuss topics around community transformation, justice and advocacy work.
Since, our first Mission Talk encounter, we have convened hundreds of young leaders from across the nation in our annual conference to learn from community based organizations, national leaders and community practitioners about social causes like racial inequality, criminal justice, immigration, voting restoration, mass incarceration, death penalty, police brutality and poverty.
Every year, we host several cohorts to empower and train young leaders to serve communities in need and conduct advocacy work during legislative sessions at our state capitol. We also host in-person gatherings in different cities and connect young leaders to local community practitioners, community-based and faith-based organizations.
Our Vision is for young Latin@s to be at the forefront of community transformation and justice work.
- Embrace our culture and heritage
- Discover our identity and purpose
- Educate to become lifelong community practitioners
- Build community through relational experiences
Our Mission is to create accessible educational opportunities to train Latin@s young leaders to become equipped community field practitioners.
Mission Talk, was founded as a Latino led movement to better serve issues related to the Hispanic culture and community.
Nonetheless, we welcome and work together with all ethnic communities.
