Washington, D.C. – In honor of the diverse accomplishments of the incoming Biden-Harris administration and the record number of Latinos and communities of color who participated in the 2021 presidential election, the Alliance of Latinx Leadership & Policy is proud to host the 2021 Latino Inaugural National Day of Service on Martin Luther King Day, January 18, 2021. The virtual event will convene the diverse voices representing our Latino community. The event will include the participation of influential political figures, civil rights icons, actors, and entertainers, among many others. The goal of the event is to celebrate this historic moment and the growing influence and contribution of the Latino vote and Latinx culture in the United States.

“This is truly an unprecedented moment for the nation and the Latino community,” said ALLP President Bill Valdez. “It’s an honor to convene the diverse voices of the Latino community on this National Day of Service as we welcome the Biden-Harris administration and we build back better together towards an inclusive democracy.”

Key speakers will include Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Civil Rights Leader Dolores Huerta, Former Secretary Julian Castro, Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chair Rep. Raul Ruiz, Edward James Olmos, Dreamer Advocate Gaby Pacheco, Astronaut Jose Hernandez, Former San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, among others.

In this historic moment as we celebrate the first woman Vice President of the United States, we salute Vice President Kamala Harris by hosting a Roundtable Discussion of Latina leaders to discuss the challenges and opportunities for Latinos across the country.

“It is powerful for our community to gather on such an important day on the MLK National Day of Service and welcome a new moment for Latinos and the incoming administration, said ALLP CEO Dolores Atencio. “As our community continues to experience the disproportionate impact of COVID-19, a national reckoning for racial justice and the impact of the economic recession, this convening is the opportunity to highlight the Latino community’s contribution and resiliency, as we work to rebuild and reimagine the future of our nation.”

We are partnering with the American Latino Museum, in order to support and showcase the rich contributions through the arts and humanities that Latinos weave into the diversity of the American tapestry. Event donations will support the American Latino Museum and ALLP.
