NATIONAL LATINO PEACE OFFICERS ASSOCIATION ADVOCACY BOARD
NLPOA – Advocacy is an organization that is comprised of state and local charters throughout the country. The primary purpose of the charters is to promote social welfare by advocating with regard to law enforcement, including best practices, diversity, and community relations. NLPOA - Advocacy may also endorse candidates for political office.
NLPOA Advocacy is a 501(c) (4) organization different from NLPOA in that it serves purposes that are tax-exempt but which do not rise to the level of charitable purposes. 501(c) (4) organizations are classified as "social welfare" organizations.
The current Arizona - Advocacy Board of Directors is made up of the following individuals: Attorney Severiano A. Rodarte, Chaplain Miguel F. Gomez-Acosta, Amy Vasquez, and three retired law enforcement and past AZNLPOA chapter and state presidents Lou Espindola, Ron Gomez, and Adam Bustos.

Our Mission Statement
The mission of the association is to eliminate prejudice and discrimination in the Criminal Justice System (particularly in law enforcement). To create a fraternal/professional organization that provides support, advocacy, personal and professional development to its members. To prevent and reduce juvenile delinquency, and lessen neighborhood tension in the Latino communities, through awareness and role modeling, provide bi-lingual assistance to the public, and bridge the gap between the Latino community and the police.
The NLPOA is committed to awarding scholarships to high school students interested in pursuing a higher education, and we are proud to say we have awarded over one hundred scholarships to underprivileged students as an alternative to gangs and drugs.
Thanks to our sponsors, supporters, and our membership for their continued support which allows us to provide assistance to youth, and the community.
Our Mission is to further promote the interests of our organization and our members to the community. We strive to make a difference by educating the public and expanding our reach.
Working Together, We Can Make A Difference!
