Familias en Acción's 15th annual Latino Health Equity Conference is a vibrant intersection of knowledge, advocacy, and cultural celebration. Under the banner of "Nuestra Salud, Nuestro Poder: Cultivating Reproductive Justice," we invite you to help lead our guests in exploring the intersections of reproductive health and the holistic well-being of our vibrant Latino/a/e communities.

  • Teen pregnancy and comprehensive sex education programs

  • Immigration status and its impacts on healthcare access

  • Reproductive rights and advocacy efforts

  • Inclusivity of gender and sexual identities within reproductive health services

  • Community Health Worker Programs

  • Cultural competency and reproductive health outcomes

  • Holistic Maternal Health Outcomes

  • Language Access for Reproductive Justice

  • Intersectionality in Reproductive Health

  • Youth Engagement in Reproductive Health Education

  • Policy Advocacy for Reproductive Justice

  • Mental Health in Reproductive Health

Breakout sessions will be in-person and 75 minutes in length, including 10 minutes for attendees to complete an evaluation of the presentation at the end. Please design your proposal for a 65-minute presentation (including any time you would like to allocate to Q&A). We will only consider proposals for presenters who are able to be in-person in Portland, Oregon on May 22, 2024.
