New Report: White House Hispanic Summits Engaged More Than 3,000 People

Posted: Mar 13, 2012


WASHINGTON -- More than 3,000 Hispanic community and business leaders and over 70 senior Obama Administration officials shared their ideas and expertise on nearly 500 topics involving important federal services and safeguards over the past year, according to a new report released this week by the White House Office of Public Engagement and the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics.

According to the report released this week, the engagement with Hispanic community leaders at last year's regional meetings have helped establish dozens of new partnerships; provide technical assistance and support to small businesses and educate employers and employees on workplace protections; improve access to quality health care under the Affordable Care Act; expand nutrition assistance; promote diversity and inclusion in federal programs and workforce; and protect civil rights in education, housing and immigration.

The White House held more than a dozen Hispanic community action summits in 14 cities spanning 8 states since last summer, with several more planned for the coming months. In the next several weeks, the White House will hold more community action summits in San Antonio, Texas, Durham, N.C., Milwaukee, Wis., and Los Angeles, Calif.
