The Somos el Futuro Spring 2015 Conference is less than one week away. This event serves as a platform for legislators, scholars, business and labor leaders to address issues that impact the Hispanic community. The funds collected from the conference will benefit the Somos el Futuro Hispanic Leadership Institute. The HLI’s programs aim to create opportunities for the Hispanic youth of New York State that will facilitate their professional development, growth, and future success.

The theme for this spring’s conference is as follows: “Somos Now: Leading a New Generation of Change, Opportunity, Progress and Success.”

Somos el Futuro is proud to welcome Assemblyman Marcos Crespo as the new Chairman of the New York State Assembly and Senate Puerto Rican and Hispanic Task Force.

The 2014 Fall Conference was a huge success, with over 500 participants meeting in San Juan to create meaningful discourse regarding issues affecting the Hispanic community of New York State. Somos el Futuro was able to make a $15,000 donation to the Hogar San José de la Montaña, our small way of making a difference for the youth of Puerto Rico.
