The Latina Leadership Network (LLN) was founded in 1987 in response to the severe under representation of Latinas in California community colleges–as students, educators, staff, administrators, and trustees.  Today, the organization boasts chapters at Community Colleges across California and continues to encourage the personal growth and educational success of Latinas through regional participation, statewide networking, policy formulation, and academic and professional conferences.  We invite members of the press to join us at this year’s conference.
