On Saturday, March 26th from 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. the White House Initiative on Advancing Educational Equity, Excellence and Economic Opportunity for Hispanics and the Aspen Institute hosted the second White House Initiative Latino Economic Summit at the Community College of Denver with First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra, senior leaders from the White House, U.S. Department of Education, U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Small Business Administration, U.S. Office of Personnel Management, and local leaders.
Held at the Community College of Denver’s Confluence Building, this summit is part of a series of in-person events across the country designed to highlight the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to advancing equity and economic empowerment and to connect local Latino community members directly with federal leaders and resources.
President Joe Biden and Administration leaders know that America’s future prosperity and global leadership is tied to the success of Latino families and communities. Through the American Rescue Plan, Bi-partisan Infrastructure law, executive orders and Administrative actions, the Biden-Harris Administration is making historic investments in the Latino community from federal contracting to workforce development. Together, we are building a better America.
