National Council of La Raza

National Council of La Raza

From April 15, 2013 through June 14, 2013, Global Policy Solutions  (GPS) coordinated logistics for a policy convening for the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) in conjunction with the release of the report “Latino Financial Access and Inclusion in California.”

The event was held on June 4, 2013 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. NCLR President and CEO, Janet Murguía, opened the event with a powerful welcome noting the link between immigration status and Latino engagement in our financial institutions.  Janis Bowdler, Economic Policy Director at NCLR shared findings from the newly released report; Elizabeth Garza, Managing Director, Citi Global Consumer Banking Governance, Regulatory and External Affairs, served as the keynote speaker; and Corey Carlisle, Senior Vice President, American Bankers Association and Raul Raymundo, CEO, The Resurrection project, responded to the findings.

Immediately after the event, NCLR hosted a by-invitation-only convening of select affiliate and partner representatives for a closed-door strategy session and lunch meeting.


The National Council of La Raza (NCLR)—the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States—works to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans.  Through its network of nearly 300 affiliated community-based organizations, NCLR reaches millions of Hispanics each year in 41 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia.  To achieve its mission, NCLR conducts applied research, policy analysis, and advocacy, providing a Latino perspective in five key areas—assets/investments, civil rights/immigration, education, employment and economic status, and health. In addition, it provides capacity-building assistance to its Affiliates who work at the state and local level to advance opportunities for individuals and families. Learn more at www.nclr.org.
