The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics is now the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative (Initiative). The Initiative was originally established by President George H.W. Bush in 1990 to address the educational disparities faced by the Hispanic community.
On July 9, 2020, President Donald Trump signed an Executive Order on the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative focused on promoting access to educational and economic opportunities for the Hispanic community. This commitment demonstrates the strong support for the critical role Hispanics play in the overall prosperity of the nation and highlights the federal government’s commitment to expanding educational and economic opportunities for the Hispanic community.
The second meeting of the President’s Advisory Commission on Hispanic Prosperity will be held on Wednesday, September 30, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. Members of the public may register to receive dial-in instructions at the following website:
