Our cultural mission is to create welcoming spaces for people of diverse backgrounds.
La Coalición’s cultural mission is to create welcoming spaces for people of diverse backgrounds to connect by highlighting the richness and diversity of Latino cultures, supporting local Latino entrepreneurs and artists, and bringing over 50,000 community members together annually. Our events increase knowledge and appreciation of the wide range and richness of cultural forms in Latin America. They provide a space for expatriates to remember, honor and recreate traditions from their countries while at the same time share that legacy with others.
