According to the 2022 U.S. Latino GDP Report; the total economic output (or GDP) of Latinos in the United States was $2.8 trillion in 2020, up from $2.1 trillion in 2015, and $1.7 trillion in 2010.
If Latinos living in the United States were an independent country, the U.S. Latino GDP would be the fifth largest GDP in the world, larger even than the GDPs of the United Kingdom, India or France. Latinos were a critical source of resilience, not just for their own families and communities, but for the U.S. economy as a whole.

Leticia will use anecdotes, videos, and personal fundraising experiences in an interactive format. Participants will learn how fun and generous Latinos could be if we speak to them directly and learn how to engage them in our missions.
