Powered by the Hispanic Impact Fund — a program of Austin Community Foundation — Somos Austin offers an opportunity to convene around health, education and economic issues affecting the Hispanic community and invest in proven solutions.
We exist to support the economic security and advancement of Hispanic Central Texans, an essential priority for the future of our region. By leveraging the assets, resilience and strength of our Latino community, we’re investing in the potential of future leaders and entrepreneurs.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, like all things over this past year, our plans for Somos Austin 2021 are dynamic. Still, we know one thing for sure: whether it be through an in-person or a digital event, we are as committed to our mission as ever to bridge the racial wealth divide for Latinos in Central Texas.
Support our changemaking work.
How you can help:
- Amplify stories
Help amplify stories from Latino leaders that explore how we can create an Austin where everyone has what they need to succeed using #SomosAustin.
