Latino Advisory Council

In 2003, the LBC established a Latino Outreach initiative in an effort to include diverse community voices at the planning table through a series of listening sessions. The group was formalized in 2009 to become the Latino Advisory Council (LAC) with the vision of creating engaging programs through community collaboration, cultivating relationships with our community, and celebrating Latino arts and artists.

For nearly two decades this group of community leaders has partnered with LBC to shape annual events such as Fiesta de Independencia and Posada Navideña. Their insight also helps guide the vision and goals of the entire organization. The ever-popular Mariachi Ensemble started as an idea from this group, which has now grown to serve over 75 students from all over Sonoma County annually.

We are immensely grateful for the continued support and guidance from the members of the LAC as we strive to ensure that LBC remains relevant, welcoming, and accessible to everyone in our community. If you’re interested in learning more about the LAC and how to get involved, please reach out to us at
