Conservative student organization Turning Point USA, which aims to advance support for free markets and limited government, hosted its largest ever Young Latino Leadership Summit over the weekend in Phoenix, Arizona.
Turning Point USA (TPUSA) hosted its annual Young Latino Leadership Summit in Phoenix, Arizona, over the weekend, where students and activists had the opportunity to hear from several prominent speakers within the conservative movement.
TPUSA founder and executive director Charlie Kirk said that this year’s event is his organization’s largest Latino summit to date.
The summit speakers included President Donald Trump’s Hispanic Advisory Council Steve Cortes, My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell, investigative reporter Sara Carter, border patrol agent Art Del Cueto, and television personality Kimberly Guilfoyle, among many others.

Kirk told Breitbart News that the Young Latino Leadership Summit attendees are in “a daily battle with those who want them to believe that if you come from a certain background, or if you look and talk a certain way, you can’t be conservative.”
“These young leaders flip that narrative on its head and expose it for the lie it is,” continued Kirk, “They are part of a large and growing movement within the Hispanic-American community, and they are national heroes for fighting so courageously for what they believe in.”
The TPUSA founder added that his organization is committed to “supporting and equipping them every step of the way.”
“TPUSA keeps revealing the truth, that those who support freedom are a diverse community and those who support big government want us all to look and act the same,” said Kirk.
