*About Latino Civic Alliance: Latino Civic Alliance is a nonpartisan state wide advocacy organization that works to promote civic engagement in local, county and statewide elections in the State of Washington.  It all began in 2005 with a trip to Olympia, Washington named "Hispanic/Latino Legislative Day".  It is a day for Latinos and Latino supporters to come to the state capital to discuss and learn about the issues affecting Latinos in the State of Washington. It is an opportunity to demystify the government access, and to promote the idea that the government is for the people and by the people.  All Washingtonians should feel that they can discuss the issues that affect them in their daily lives with those that are so duly elected to represent their interests either in local, state or a national political arena.
