ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
CPEHN’s biennial Voices for Change Conference comes at a critical moment for communities of color and the health equity movement.
In recent years, we have seen constant attacks against the health and well-being of our communities. As we head into the mid-term elections, the stakes are even higher. This year’s conference, Mobilizing for Health Equity, will bring together community members, advocates, and policymakers to strategize about how to mobilize our networks to fight for health equity.
For 25 years, CPEHN has helped bring together diverse communities and groups to demonstrate the ways our interests and goals overlap. Together, we have leveraged our collective knowledge and strength to advance policies that have improved access to care and the social and environmental conditions that contribute to health. Now is the time to not only protect our hard-fought successes but also advance bold policy initiatives.
The future of our health depends on our collective Voices for Change. We hope that you will join us. #VoicesForChange2018
We are pleased to announce that our keynote speaker is Maria Hinojosa!
As a reporter who was the first Latina in many newsrooms, Maria Hinojosa dreamt of a space where she could create independent, multimedia journalism that explores and gives a critical voice to the diverse American experience. To that end, in 2010, she created the Futuro Media Group, a nonprofit organization with the mission to create multimedia content for and about the new American mainstream in the service of empowering people to navigate the complexities of an increasingly diverse and connected world. As the Anchor and Executive Producer of Latino USA, distributed by NPR, as well as Co-Host of In The Thick podcast, Hinojosa has informed millions about the changing cultural and political landscape in America and abroad.
Hinojosa has reported hundreds of important stories — often taking viewers into communities rarely shown on television. Hinojosa’s nearly 30-year career as a journalist includes reporting for PBS, CBS, WNBC, CNN, NPR, and anchoring Maria Hinojosa: One-on-One. She is the author of two books and has won dozens of awards. Now at the Futuro Media Group, Hinojosa continues to bring attention to experiences and points of view that are often overlooked or underreported in mainstream media, all while mentoring the next generation of diverse journalists to delve into authentic and nuanced stories that impact their communities.
