The UnidosUS Annual Conference is the largest gathering of its kind in the Hispanic community, serving as the meeting ground for over 23,000 community organization leaders, activists, and volunteers; elected and appointed officials; members of the corporate, philanthropic, and academic communities; senior citizens; college students; and youth. Future Changemakers is a pathway that brings together hundreds of college students to exchange ideas and learn about issues affecting their communities, such as higher education, career development, financial literacy, and advocacy. The event nurtures leadership development through hands-on workshops and provides an avenue for youth to network and meet students from across the nation. The 2018 UnidosUS Annual Conference was held July 6th-11th, in Washington D.C. The 2019 UnidosUs Conference will be held next August in San Diego, California.
