Project: Politica Puentes
Program: CO.STARTERS for Causes
Politica Puentes, which translates to political bridges, was created to allow Latino professionals to connect with other members of their community through local nonprofit, La Paz’s, Compañia program. By using design thinking workshops, Latino professionals will help articulate issues facing their community is faced with by speaking to elected officials in the City Council, Board of Education or the County Commission. At the end of the project, the goal is to have a sustainable platform (like an app), where conversations can be seamlessly facilitated between the Latino community and the local government.
CO.STARTERS for Causes is a nine-week program that helps individuals put ideas into action, turning a passion for bettering the community into a sustainable and thriving endeavor.
