SOMOS, Inc., is a nonpartisan, nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization that unites the Latino community, raises awareness, advocates and elevates social consciousness on public policy in collaboration with the New York State Assembly/Senate Puerto Rican & Hispanic Task Force; and ensures the upward mobility of Latino youth through educational empowerment, mentoring programs and scholarships.
SOMOS is a leading force in bringing together Latino communities to make positive and transformative impacts resulting in an improvement in the socioeconomic and civic status of all Latinos across New York State and beyond.
This year's SOMOS Puerto Rico Conference will focus on the ongoing crisis that Puerto Rico faces. It is our goal to educate the conference participants on the issues so that their voices can be heard back home and that the diaspora can stand united in advocating for positive change and action. Participants will engage in service-related activities and in dialogues that will highlight and help to shape priorities for public policy, civic participation and community engagement. Join us in thought-provoking workshops focusing on key issues, such as energy and resiliency, business development, health, and education.
