Next LAD Meeting, Wednesday, April 2

Wednesday, April 2 • 6:30pm • Front Range Community College • Community Room

Our nation is vibrant BECAUSE of its immigrant community. You don’t have to go back very far in anyone’s history to find an ancestor who was born in another country. And our Latino community, especially in Colorado, contributes character, culture, work ethic, appreciation of heritage — as well as jobs, services, and revenue — that is simply invaluable to our state!

Join us next Wednesday, when we have representatives from Boulder County’s Latino Task Force and the Community Foundation presenting reports on the trends that affect our community and our nation. Some of the stats are sobering — but with information comes possible solutions, and most importantly DIALOGUE.

We’ll also have Boulder County Dems’ Outreach and Inclusion Team to share their plan to respond to these trends.

Information…Discussion…Socializing!

Please join us…and please, bring a friend! Next Wednesday, April 2, 6:30pm, Front Range Community College, 2121 Miller Drive, Classroom Building (east side of Miller Drive), Community Room. (go in door C4, go left, past the cafeteria, Community Room is on the right across from the bathrooms.)

(It’s also Daylight Savings time, so BE SURE TO SET YOUR CLOCKS FORWARD Saturday night…)

Vic Meyers, candidate for the 4th Congressional seat, will be driving up from Trinidad to Longmont THIS SUNDAY to get to know each of YOU and tell you why he needs your support.

3 EVENTS ON SUNDAY, MARCH 9:
9:00-10:30am, AMERICAN LEGION, 315 S. Bowen, Longmont. Please support the Legion by having one of their great breakfasts, and meet Vic, who is also a member!
