10/12: Register Now For White House Hispanic Community Action Summit in ABQ
From the White House:
It is our pleasure to invite you to join us at the White House Hispanic Community Action Summit in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Saturday, November 12, 2011 from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM. The summit, free and open to the public, will take place at the Pete V. Domenici Education Center of the National Hispanic Cultural Center located at 1701 Fourth Street SW, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87102.
The gathering is designed to connect senior Obama Administration officials from a wide array of policy areas with Hispanic leaders, business owners, and local officials to discuss issues critical to the Hispanic community, New Mexico, and the nation. The summit is part of a series currently taking place across the country.
This regional gathering follows summits held in Las Cruces, NM, Las Vegas, NV, Orlando, FL, and a White House Hispanic Public Policy Conference held in Washington, D.C. in July. As with prior meetings, the event in Albuquerque will provide an opportunity for you to interact with senior Administration officials on important issues ranging from jobs and the economy to education, health care, and fixing the broken immigration system so that we meet our nation's 21st-century economic and security needs.
The summit will consist of an innovative open space dialogue where you will work together with other participants to define the agenda and shape the format. Local leaders and Administration officials will welcome participants in the morning plenary on Tuesday.
The goals for this summit are:
- Relationship Building-Connecting Latino leaders to key Administration decisionmakers;
- Obama Administration 101-Ensuring folks gain a deeper understanding of the multifaceted ways this Administration's agenda connects to the Hispanic community; and
- Working Together-Allowing participants to connect with each other and Administration officials to address how we improve access and outcomes for the Hispanic community.
