    The Summit on Latin@s—NYC (SoL-NYC) is a convention of broad segments of New York City’s Hispanic community that come together to take stock of the community, to discuss and prioritize the issues and challenges it faces, and to develop strategies and seize opportunities to address them, for the betterment of the community and the city at large. For this purpose, SoL-NYC convenes advocates and activists, academic institutions, community leaders and elected officials, concerned individuals, grass-roots groups and institutionalized organizations, in order to incorporate as many voices and their variegated interests in the process of forging collectively an action agenda that may lead to a concerted effort in responding to the concerns of the Latino community.
