About Us

The Latinx Leaders Roundtable formed to produce the Greater Rochester Latinx Agenda during the pandemic. The 2021 Latinx Agenda intends to be the starting place to initiate dialogue, create focus, and develop advocacy strategies relevant to our community. This is a living document and will be updated on a consistent basis. The LLR recognizes that there are other important matters that did not make the final document and we will continue to work with the community to evolve our agenda. We welcome your support, advocacy, and partnership to advance our work. This will not be a shelf plan. If there are pieces of the agenda you wish to champion, we encourage you to reach out in partnership. Authentic engagement of the Latinx community will be critically important as context is just as important as the content of this agenda. We look forward to bringing progress to life.
