City of Las Vegas leaders took a step towards reaching out to the Latino community in southern Nevada.

The city put on a networking and leadership summit at the East Las Vegas Community Center Friday.

Hundreds of people turned out to learn about the economy, health and education services. Immigration was also a key topic.

City Councilman Bob Coffin, who hosted the event, says the goal was to help Latinos make connections.

"What I'm hoping the attendees take away is a feeling that they're part, really part, of a larger community. not just the Latino community, the entire community of Clark County and the city of Las Vegas," Coffin said.

Coffin helped organize breakout sessions where attendees got to discuss issues specific to them. Coffin says he will take those ideas back to city council to try to make resolutions.
