Our signature event is held at least once per year, twice a year on Presidential election and Gubernatorial election years. The first VEF is typically held in April and typically draws the candidates for office at the local level from the Sacramento Statistical Metropolitan Area (SMSA). The second VEF is usually held in September and draws the local, state and federal candidates. While no endorsements are made at these forums, the candidates are able to respond to issues raised by Latinos and to make their best case to the Latino community. They are completely nonpartisan and often draw candidates from all registered parties, i.e. Democrats, Republican, Green and Libertarian. If you want to be known in the Latino community of Sacramento, this is the place to make your mark.
