Event to take place in San Jose, California on Saturday, January 21, 2012 and followed by the LATISM Bay Area Chapter Launch Reception
Latinos in Social Media (LATISM) is proud to invite its community to an exciting event: the White House Hispanic Community Action Summit in San Jose, California. The event, a great experiment in citizen-driven democracy and government, will take place tomorrow, Saturday, January 21, 2012 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at Gullo II Student Center, Evergreen Valley College, 3095 Yerba Buena Road, San Jose, California 95135. You may RSVP to the White House event here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/webform/white-house-hispanic-community-action-summit-san-jose-california
The free summit is open to the public and will connect senior Obama Administration officials from diverse policy areas with Hispanic leaders, business owners, and other community stakeholders to discuss issues critical to the Hispanic community, San Jose, and the nation. The San Jose summit follows similar regional meetings held in Miami and Orlando, FL, Albuquerque and Las Cruces, NM, Riverside, CA, Denver, CO, New York, NY, and Las Vegas, NV, in addition to the White House Hispanic Policy Conference held in July in Washington, D.C. Topics of discussion have covered a wide-range of policy issues—from jobs and the economy to education and health care, from comprehensive immigration reform to housing—all in recognition that the future of our nation in the 21st century is inextricably linked to the success of the Hispanic community.
Immediately following the White House event, LATISM will be hosting its LATISM Bay Area Chapter Inauguration. The reception will feature the performance of singing sensation Manuel Romero as well as and speeches by keynote Jose Rico, Director of the White House Initiative for Excellence in Education for Hispanics as well as Chancellor Rita Cepeda and Henry Yong, President of Evergreen Valley College. Refreshments will be served.
