COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The League of United Latin American Citizens plans to hold its annual state convention in Ohio’s capital.

A statement from the Hispanic group says the convention set for Saturday in Columbus draws hundreds of participants each year. Organizers say those participants include leaders from government, education, health, business and social services oriented to the Latino community.

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley will be the keynote speaker at this year’s convention at the Westin Columbus.

The theme of the 2015 convention is “Making Ohio the Most Immigrant-Friendly State.” Organizers say the meeting provides a place to discuss critical issues for the Latino population.

Free seminars will focus on issues including human trafficking, education and immigration reform. Organizers say participants also will share stories of their personal struggles and hopes as young immigrants.
