On Saturday April 1st , the Latino Faculty and Staff Association at Fresno State will partner with the Hispanas Organized for Political Equality (HOPE) to facilitate a media training, as part of the HOPE College Leadership Program.

The purpose of the training is to equip young Latina Leaders to be media spokespeople and be interviewed by the press on issues related to accessing health care, immigration and civic engagement. During the training, participants will be briefed with statistical information and current data on these important issues and will learn how to effectively communicate to the media. HOPE knows that with effective and engaging (and enjoyable!) media training, participants can maximize their advocacy efforts and leverage their relationships to make real changes within their communities.

This training is provided as part of HOPE’s College Leadership Program, a program that encompasses networking, professional development, enhanced civic participation and career exploration with the goal of supporting college level Latinas’ successful degree completion and workforce integration.

The training is at the Smittcamp House from 9 am to 2 pm. Lunch is provided.
