Who we are

Latino Legacy Weekend (LLW) is a retreat space which fosters innovative thinking by building bridges across professions, ideologies, generations, national ancestries, regions, and religions of the American Latino community through idea interchange and relationship development.

LLW seeks innovative Latino leaders from all sectors, including, while not limited to, business, art, environment, energy, finance, education, religion, law, non-profit, medicine, government, media, science, sports, and technology, to participate in the weekend.

LLW participants will lead and/or contribute to discussion on innovative topics of their choice.  The objective is to encourage personal and community renewal through the transforming power of ideas and relationships, while transcending traditional political, economic, and philosophical differences. Participation in LLW is by invitation only.  Families of participants are most welcome to attend and share LLW together.


While LLW is free of charge to participate, LLW will not be responsible for any travel and lodging expenses incurred by participants.

As a participant leader, we ask you to elect one of the following roles during the weekend:

 1. Present on a topic of your choice for 5 minutes or;

 2. Serve on a panel comprised of 3-6 leaders to address a relevant issue area (topics will be developed upon confirmation of participants).
