C.H.C.I. Public Policy ConferencePosted: September 8, 2008
Today I attended the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institutes Public Policy Conference. It was held at the convention center here in Washington DC. I was lucky enough to be picked (and a few others) from my school to attend this conference. My school was interestingly enough the only school from DC, but a host of kids came from neighboring Montgomery County of Maryland.
I was really happy to see other youth attending such an event, seeing how everyone else there were adults. But the adults that were there were truly inspiring!
I mean, there were politicians, CEOs, and media personalties everywhere! I felt so proud to be around so many smart and powerful Latinos and Latinas.
To be more specific about who was there, the following ( that I can remember) attended:
Luis Gutierrez- Representative of Illinois’s 4th District.
Anna Escobedo Cabral- US Treasurer
Joe Baca- Representative of California’s 43rd District
Joe Uva- CEO of Univision
Don Browne- President of Telemundo Group, Inc.
Janet Murguia- President and CEO of National Council of La Raza.
There were other important folks that were there, but these people really stood out to me because of their words.
I will be posting pictures of this event soon, but I hope that you will give the CHCI’s site a looky loo.
