White House Hispanic Community Summit Opens Southern New Mexico Dialog

White House Hispanic Community Action Summit in Las Cruces

Senior members of the Obama Administration traveled to Las Cruces open a dialog with local southern New Mexico community leaders and engage with area citizens in a wide range of fields spanning education, immigration, health, and economic development.

The gathering, held on Thursday at the Las Cruces Convention Center, was designed to connect Administration officials from a wide array of policy areas with community-based Hispanic leaders, business owners, and local officials to discuss issues critical to the Hispanic community, New Mexico, and the nation.  The summit is part of a series currently taking place across the country.

The summit, which drew a large and diverse group of southern New Mexico participants,  was organized around an innovative open space dialogue where participants worked together and with others to define the agenda and shape the format.  The Las Cruces event was one of many in which the Administration has worked to keep its promises to seek direct feedback from local communities.
