Affiliate Council

The UnidosUS Affiliate Council serves as a voice for, and represents the partnership between, UnidosUS and its most important constituency—its nearly 300 Affiliates. It provides guidance to UnidosUS on its programs and public policy, and on strengthening regional networks and promoting the work of Affiliates.

In addition, the Affiliate Council works closely with the UnidosUS Affiliate Engagement team to implement UnidosUS’s regional strategy, engaging Affiliates across the country to advance major issues that benefit the Hispanic community.
