San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro will be the keynote speaker at the Latino Policy Forum breakfast Friday, Nov. 8, in Chicago.

This is the Latino Policy Forum's third annual policy breakfast, which is part of its Latinos on the Move series. More than 400 elected, business, civic and community leaders are expected to attend. The anticipated theme will be "Latino Education, Service and Leadership: A Shared Future."

The Latino Policy Forum's mission is to improve education outcomes, advocate for affordable housing, promote just immigration policies, and engage diverse sectors of the community, with an understanding that advancing Hispanics advances a shared future.

Castro will share his perspective on how educational investments and bolstering urban communities will help ensure that young, diverse Americans have the opportunity to grow into leadership and public service, shaping the shared future of the nation, according to a press release.

Castro, 39, is the youngest mayor of a Top 50 American city, according to the city of San Antonio's web site. He was first elected in 2009, and re-elected to a third term in 2013.

Other attendees of the Latino Policy Forum are Sylvia Puente, executive director of Latino Policy Forum; Marty Castro, event co-Chair, chair of U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, president of Castro Synergies; Jose Rico, former executive director of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics; and Sol Flores, executive director of La Casa Norte.

The Latino Policy Forum breakfast will be from 7:30 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago.
