On Thursday, July 11 to Saturday, July 13, 2019, The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) hosted their 90th Annual National Convention & Exposition in Milwaukee. A number of events, panels, a free Expo and conferences took place as part of the convention to get Latino voters ready for the 2020 presidential election. As part of their initiatives, LULAC is partnering with a number of African American originations to work together to make a more unified front of color at the polls this year.

One of the highlights was the Unity Luncheon which featured a number of invited guests including Milwaukee Urban League President and CEO Dr. Eve M. Hall (top photo) and Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes (lower photo).

Other events included such notable speakers as New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio who spoke at the convention banquet (below); and 2020 presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT, 2nd photo below) who hosted a town hall meeting at Coffee Makes You Black.
