New Orleans may be known for its jazz, but on Friday, August 3rd, Phone2Action and Netroots will bring the Latin flavor to the Big Easy! In recognition to the many positive attributes and contributions of the Hispanic culture in the United States, the Phone2Action team will host a celebratory evening in honor of our community awardees for their work and dedication to the Latinx community. Join us as we uplift community efforts with traditional food, drink and dance. Meet and socialize with Hispanic community leaders, organizers, candidates running for office and Netroots attendees at “La Gozadera” (Spanish term meaning a “good time” or “party”) where we will be indulging in Latin inspired cocktails, snacking on Latin treats like empanadas and churros, and dancing to the beat of a Mariachi band. We hope you will join in our fiesta!
