We have been monitoring the announcements by the local, state, and federal officials regarding the COVID-19 situation. As this situation continues to unfold, Latinos In Action has decided, in the best interest of all concerned, to cancel all remaining Youth Leadership Conferences to be held at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) on Friday, April 13, Brigham Young University on Friday, March 20, Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) on Thursday, April 9, Adams 12 School District on Friday, April 17, and the University of Utah (U of U) on Thursday, April 23, 2020.
Our plans included bringing a large number of guests to these campuses, including over 3,500 middle school, junior high school, and high school students, over 125 college student volunteers, and many university and local school district personnel. While we regret losing the opportunity to connect with our greater LIA FamiLIA, we make this decision with everyone’s safety in mind.
At some future time we will look to connect with our FamiLIA and we will look forward to hosting our conferences again in 2021. For now, we ask that all adhere to the guidelines given by local, state, and federal officials.
