GBLN’s mission is to promote community engagement to address the socio-economic issues affecting Latinos through networking, communication, collaboration and education.


GBLN was formed in 2004. It is a well-established community-supported and diverse network of organizations and individuals sharing news, information, ideas, opportunities and services. It has effectively utilized its Community News E-blast to serve as an informational clearinghouse and conduit to its 2500+ network and Facebook friends. The e-blasts promote a variety of events, opportunities, announcements and activities sponsored by GBLN and other groups in the network.

Board Of Directors

GBLN counts on current and former board/advisory board members who occupy leadership and upper management positions in the public, political and private sector. As such, GBLN is supported by Latino leaders that helped to craft and develop GBLN’s mission.
