La Fuerza Latina

La Fuerza Latina

La Fuerza Latina was formed pursuant to the passage of Drake Student SenateÕs first recorded student body referendum regarding the educational aspirations of DACA/Undocumented Latinos in Iowa. The purpose of La Fuerza Latina is to provide a space for students in solidarity with the Latino community in Des Moines and Drake and to foster dialogue around issues impacting Latinos, as well as to explore opportunities to promote a more inclusive atmosphere at Drake University. This will be done by hosting networking events with Des Moines Latino professionals, attending conferences aimed at empowering college Latino students, hosting in state or out of state Latino leaders, showcasing films on campus about Latino culture, visiting schools in the Des Moines metro area to speak with young Latino students, and promoting volunteering opportunities aimed at serving the Des Moines and Iowa Latino community.Ê
