What is MCLA?

MCLA is a state agency that advises the government on matters of interest to Latinos who live in Minnesota. It is a bridge of communication and collaboration between Latinos and the government, the private sector and nonprofits.

Why should I care?

Without Latino engagement, MCLA cannot accurately communicate the interests of the community to the government nor can it serve the community effectively. Such engagement makes possible a stronger political voice and better socio-economic choices for the Latino community.

Who does the MCLA serve?

We serve Latino Minnesotans across the state and the people of Minnesota.

MCLA is working on a page of resources and updates for Puerto Rican families affected by Hurricane Maria on September 20, 2017. The resources and updates come from meetings held in mid-October by the newly founded Coalición de Boricuas en Minnesota. Click the photo to go to the page on our site.
