To advance equity in our region, we need to invest in organizations led by people of color who are building power and self-determination within their communities. The LatinXCEL Fund will bolster the capacity of local Latinx-led organizations that are building pathways to ensure that all Latinx community members in Silicon Valley can thrive.16 December 2021
