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. Typically this takes the form of The Latino Monologues, an evening of storytelling performances for and by Latino leaders in Central Texas.
With the emergence of COVID-19, we have made the conscious decision to pivot our annual in-person fundraiser to a digital awareness campaign during Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 – Oct. 15). Stay tuned to learn more about how you can get involved!
Have questions about our digital campaign or sponsorships? Have a great idea to share? Please contact Estevan Delgado, program manager for the Hispanic Impact Fund.
How you can help:
