Assemblyman Fuentes has chaired the Hispanic Leadership Summits to increase dialogue between members of the Hispanic community from all sectors, to help non-profit organizations access all level of government, to strengthen civic awareness, and to facilitate citizen participation in the electoral process.

“We are pleased to have been able to strengthen our partnership with the Hispanic Leadership Summit these past few years,” said Dr. Houshmand. “Our community recognizes the value in strengthening cultural awareness and of educating people about how best to engage their leaders. We are proud to host the Summit in its fourth year.”
The theme of this year’s Summit is Hispanics Driven by a Purpose: Making our Mark. There are invaluable workshops for individuals to take advantage of, each designed to enhance the discussion of strengthening the Hispanic voice in New Jersey.
