Celebrating we engage; together we support

Nos encanta celebrar

LACA QLD is a non-for-profit organization that aims to develop representation and participation of Latin Americans within the wider Australian society in Queensland. Accordingly, LACA QLD aims to support the Latin American community in QLD in dealings with the federal, state and local governments and with other organisations and institutions. We want to actively participate and contribute to Queensland’s society by presenting a unified Latin American viewpoint and expressing the concerns on current social issues relevant to Australia’s multicultural society. As an organisation we want to promote the importance of having a strong cohesive community, capable of working cooperatively and systematically to seek and achieve better outcomes and circumstances for the Latin American community, especially those who are vulnerable or disadvantaged. Our projects aim to engage with community members and use community resources to increase social connectedness within and across communities. Social connectedness is an important protective factor for individuals to improve their resilience and coping skills, and to acknowledge cultural strengths that promote health and wellbeing, tolerance and respect in a multicultural society. Overall, we want to embrace our love for ‘having a good time’ with family, friends and celebrating with sports, dance and music, but we also want to respond to the issues that can really make a difference in the daily life of our people such as establishing culturally appropriate services.

Celebrating we engage; together we support

As an organization we want Latin Americans to feel proud of their background sharing it with the wider community. Celebrating together our heritage is a way of bringing people together while building and developing a sense of community. By becoming a functional community we will develop a better understanding of each other so that we can support each other and harness social connectedness. We can become more resilient and we can positively impact our own circumstances and future.
