    SESIÓN PARA PRENSA

    Expertos discutirán el estado de la inscripción, desafíos y oportunidades para los Hispanos

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – El miércoles 12 de noviembre, el Consejo Nacional de la Raza (NCLR, por sus siglas en inglés) auspiciará una sesión informativa para los periodistas en la cual expertos panelistas examinarán la inscripción de los hispanos y los esfuerzos que se necesitan para que ellos renueven su inscripción o se inscriban para obtener su seguro médico bajo el amparo de la Ley de Cuidado de Salud Asequible (Affordable Care Act o ACA, por sus siglas en inglés). La sesión se llevará a cabo a las 12 p.m. en las oficinas de NCLR en 1126 16th Street, NW, en Washington, DC.

    Los expertos de NCLR estarán acompañados por una representante del Departamento de Salud y Servicios Humanos de los Estado Unidos y por representantes de otras organizaciones asociadas con NCLR entre las cuales se incluye Families USA. El tema que discutirán es de la inscripción de los hispanos y las barreras que existen para ellos en obtener seguros médicos. La comunidad latina es el sector de la población que revela tener la mayor tasa de personas sin seguro médico. La segunda inscripción de la ley, que continuará abierta del 15 de noviembre de 2014 hasta el 15 de febrero de 2015, puede seguir reduciendo el número de Latinos que faltan seguros médicos.

    Los últimos datos publicados por la Oficina del Censo de los Estados Unidos muestran que entre 2012 y 2013 el número de hispanos sin seguro médico disminuyó ligeramente, de 15.6 millones a 15.3 millones. Sin embargo en 2013, la tasa de hispanos sin seguro médico fue el 28.4 por ciento, cifra significativamente más alta que la tasa del 10.2 por ciento para los blancos no hispanos y el 14.5 por ciento a nivel nacional. Los panelistas de la sesión informativa expondrán los factores que contribuyen al alto número de latinos sin seguro médico.

    Únase a esta sesión informativa -- solamente abierta a la prensa -- que se llevará a cabo al medio día del miércoles 12 de noviembre. Se servirá un almuerzo a los periodistas que asistan a la reunión; RSVP a Julián Teixeira: jteixeira@nclr.org o (202)776-1812.

    Countdown to Kansas City begins

    KANSAS CITY, Mo.—NCLR (National Council of La Raza) today announced highlights of its upcoming 2015 Annual Conference and National Latino Family Expo®, the preeminent events for NCLR and Latinos across the nation, which will take place in Kansas City, Mo., from Saturday, July 11 through Tuesday, July 14 at the Kansas City Convention Center. This Conference will also celebrate Kansas City, Kansas native Janet Murguía, who this year celebrates 10 years as President and CEO of the nation’s largest Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization.

    Every year, NCLR’s Annual Conference and National Latino Family Expo gather the nation’s most influential and prominent voices in the Latino community, as well as those who support NCLR’s efforts to expand opportunities for Hispanic Americans. Among those in attendance are community leaders, activists and volunteers; elected and appointed officials; and leaders of the corporate, philanthropic and academic communities. At Conference attendees have the ultimate opportunity to learn about current issues impacting Latinos and hear from prominent leaders in the arenas of immigration, voting, education, civil rights, health, workforce development and youth leadership.

    “NCLR is excited to have Kansas City host our annual gathering. As a native of the area, I have witnessed firsthand how the Latino community has grown and diversified. Hosting our Conference here highlights their presence in my beloved hometown. Whether they are contributing to the cultural panorama, boosting the economy or influencing state and local elections, Latinos are making their impact felt in Kansas City,” said Murguía.

    The 2015 NCLR Annual Conference will feature more than 50 workshops, four town halls, the Latinas Brunch, the NCLR Awards Gala and multiple networking opportunities. Toyota is the Conference Title Sponsor, UPS is the National Latino Family Expo Title Sponsor and Sprint is the Host City Sponsor.

    “There is no better investment than to truly champion our Hispanic community, and that’s why we are proud to support an organization that aligns with our values and helps empower people through education and access to information that matters,” said Debby Ballard, Director of Community Affairs at Sprint. We hope that together with NCLR we can provide the necessary resources for our Latino families, business owners and leaders to make a difference in the community and to keep on building our version of the American Dream.”

    This year’s Conference features a list of impressive speakers, including Mayor Sly James of Kansas City, Mo., Mayor Mark Holland of Kansas City, Ks., presidential candidate and former Governor of Maryland Martin O’Malley, President and CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D–Mo.), U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker, among many more.

    “As a proud partner of NCLR since 2002, Toyota is glad to be once again a title sponsor of this year’s NCLR Annual Conference,” said Patricia Salas Pineda, Vice President of Toyota’s Hispanic Business Strategy and a member of the NCLR Corporate Board of Advisors. “We have tremendous respect for the important work that NCLR does nationwide and look forward to participating in this important gathering of Hispanic leaders.”

    “UPS has been a committed partner to NCLR for more than 30 years, and is proud to be the presenting sponsor of their National Latino Family Expo,” said Eduardo Martinez, president of The UPS Foundation. “Our diverse workforce has nearly 435,000 employees globally and we consider it our greatest company strength. UPS promotes diversity and inclusion for all, striving to create opportunity for underserved and under-represented segments of society around the world.”

    The NCLR Annual Conference also brings some of the best entertainment in the Latino community. This year we are excited to include Grammy Award winner Pedro Fernández, Grammy Award nominee Frankie Negrón and comedian Cristela Alonzo among the talented lineup.

    In addition, all attendees and the Kansas City community are invited to visit the National Latino Family Expo, one of the largest events in the country focused on resources and activities for the whole family, with more than 100 exhibitors showcasing their products and services. From live entertainment and giveaways to health screenings and informative demonstrations, everyone will discover something new in a fun and exciting environment.

    NCLR Applauds New HUD Rule to Promote Fair Housing and Expand Opportunities for Latinos

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—Earlier today, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) introduced a long-awaited rule that would address housing discrimination and segregation in communities across the country. As NCLR (National Council of La Raza) has documented in numerous reports, Latinos are still discriminated against at almost every level of the housing industry.

    This rule strengthens the mandate under the Fair Housing Act (FHA) to affirmatively further fair housing and requires communities that use federal taxpayer funds to collect data on how their neighborhoods fare. To help communities achieve this goal, HUD provided a robust data tool that helps jurisdictions capture poverty rates and racial makeup, among other factors, to more accurately assess patterns of racial bias in housing. Communities will also be required to publically report these data and set goals, which will be monitored, to combat segregation and discrimination.

    NCLR applauds HUD and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro for this much-needed rule, which will help communities identify barriers to fair housing and hold them accountable for finding solutions.

    “For Latino families, who are among the most vulnerable to fair housing violations, strong regulations that combat systemic discrimination are essential to expanding opportunities and promoting healthier, safer and more diverse communities. Persistent segregation in communities often prevents low-income people and people of color from accessing quality schools, transportation and jobs,” said Janet Murguía, President and CEO of NCLR. “This strong rule from HUD will help address the growing racial and ethnic inequalities in this country by ensuring that all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, family status or disability, may choose where they want to live.”

    NCLR also welcomes new executive officers and Board members

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—NCLR (National Council of La Raza) is pleased to announce that Renata Soto, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Nashville-based nonprofit Conexión Américas, has been elected Chair of the NCLR Board of Directors. She has served as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors since 2012 and is the first Central American and Tennessean to fill the position.

    “Through her exemplary work at Conexión Américas, Renata has built a reputation as a fierce advocate for Latinos and a valuable asset for the Nashville community with the leadership skills and vision to achieve everything that she sets out to accomplish,” stated Janet Murguía, NCLR President and CEO. “Conexión Américas has become a model for nonprofits across the country thanks in part to Renata’s determination to help Latinos achieve the American Dream. We are excited to welcome Renata as the new Chair of the Board of Directors at NCLR, a position in which she will certainly leave her stamp on the organization.”

    Under the leadership of Soto, who co-founded the organization in 2002, Conexión Américas has flourished as a premiere nonprofit in the Nashville area, using a comprehensive approach to promote the social, economic and civic integration of Latino families. The organization currently assists nearly 6,000 families annually through its nationally recognized programs that help Latino families and individuals learn English, pay taxes, start a business, become homeowners, and help their children succeed in school and go to college. Soto was also instrumental in the creation of Casa Azafrán, which houses Conexión Américas and a number of other nonprofits, serving as a community gathering place and social services hub for Nashville residents. Last year, President Obama held a town hall on immigration at Casa Azafrán.

    “I’m delighted to become the new Chair of the NCLR Board of Directors,” Soto said. “I have worked closely with NCLR for many years and look forward to continuing to partner with Janet, the Board, staff and affiliated community-based organizations to create greater opportunities for Hispanic Americans. This is an exciting time as we head toward the 2016 elections with growing recognition of the importance of Latinos to the future of our great nation.”

    Soto has also helped to ensure that Nashville remains a vibrant and inclusive community as a founding member of the Nashville for All of Us coalition, which helped defeat an “English-only” referendum in 2009. She has been repeatedly honored for her leadership and commitment to the Nashville community, earning her induction into the YWCA Academy for Women of Achievement in 2012 and receiving recognition as the 2013 “Nashvillian of the Year” from the Nashville Scene. She was recently selected for the 2015 Pahara-Aspen Education Fellowship.

    In addition to Soto, the members of the NCLR Board of Directors’ Executive Committee are:
    • Maria S. Salinas, Vice Chair (Los Angeles)
    • Catherine Pino, Secretary (Falls Church, Va.)
    • Beatriz Olvera-Stotzer, Treasurer (Los Angeles)
    • Jorge A. Plasencia, Immediate Past Chair (Miami)
    • Janet Murguía, President and CEO (Washington, D.C.)

    The Members at Large are:
    • Luis Avila (Phoenix)
    • Sergio Gonzalez (Miami)
    • Dr. Edwin Meléndez (New York)
    • J. Walter Tejada (Arlington, Va.)

    The NCLR Board also welcomed several new members:
    • Ruby Azurdia-Lee, President, CLUES (Minneapolis)
    • John Esquivel, retired Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer and Associate General Counsel, Shell Oil Company (Houston)
    • Michael G. Johnson, Chief Human Resource Officer and Vice President of Human Resources–Global Employee Services, UPS (Atlanta)
    • Celena Roldán-Moreno, Executive Director, Erie Neighborhood House (Chicago)
    • Rossana Rosado, Distinguished Lecturer, John Jay College (New York)

    NCLR’s Board is a 24-member body composed of elected officials and representatives of community-based organizations, the corporate sector and academia. Board members reflect the diversity of Hispanic nationality groups and the geographic distribution of the U.S. Hispanic population. By mandate, the Board must include equal representation of men and women.

    NCLR Announces Immigo 2.0
    Additional features added to the successful app designed to
    support immigrant integration

    KANSAS CITY, Mo.—Today, NCLR (National Council of La Raza) unveiled Immigo 2.0, an updated version of its innovative mobile app designed to inform service providers and organizations working in the immigrant integration field with the most up-to-date information about immigration law and policy.

    The updated version of the Immigo app has several new features and enhancements, such as the ability to email, tweet and share content from the app with others; the option to print information from the app wirelessly; and advanced search options for the Find Legal Help feature, which allows users to search for local lawyers with specialties such as naturalization and narrow results by languages spoken.

    “Immigo 2.0 includes enhancements that we are excited to bring to the app’s users,” said Janet Murguía, President and CEO of NCLR. “Immigo will continue to be an incredible resource and valuable tool to all those working with immigrant communities. I want to thank Verizon for its long-standing partnership and support of Immigo, a one-of-a kind application providing technology solutions that are helping NCLR’s Affiliates.”

    “From education to immigration reform, we proudly support the outstanding work NCLR does every day on behalf of Latino children and families nationwide. At Verizon innovation with purpose is at the heart of what we do and why we invested in the creation of the Immigo app. We are truly excited about the significant impact that the Immigo app will have for strengthening the Latino community today and for years to come,” said Emilio Gonzalez, Executive Director for Verizon Strategic Alliances.

    By building on the app’s already easy-to-use features, Immigo will continue to serve as a comprehensive resource for anyone who works with immigrant communities. The app, which is currently available for free on Apple and Android smartphones and tablets, provides users with information about state and federal regulations and resources associated with immigration, as well as changes and updates to immigration law and policy. Additional features include a daily immigration news feed and geolocation technology that allows users to find nearby, trusted providers of immigration legal services.

    “We’re excited to partner with NCLR to launch the next-generation Immigo app,” said Matthew Burnett, Director of the Immigration Advocates Network (IAN). “New features and content will allow advocates to connect immigrants to quality legal information and trusted referrals at a time when fraud and misinformation in immigrant communities is rampant.”

    The application was made possible by NCLR with support from Verizon; it was developed in partnership with IAN and Pro Bono Net.

    NCLR Presents San Francisco and Kansas City Affiliates with Family Strengthening Award at the 2015 NCLR Annual Conference

    KANSAS CITY, Mo.—At the National Affiliate Luncheon held today at the 2015 NCLR Annual Conference in Kansas City, Mo., NCLR (National Council of La Raza) recognized two community-based organizations that belong to the NCLR Affiliate Network for their outstanding efforts to empower Latino families and broaden opportunities available to them. This year’s awardees are Mission Asset Fund in San Francisco and Guadalupe Centers, Inc. in Kansas City, Mo.

    “We are honoring Mission Asset Fund and Guadalupe Centers at the 2015 NCLR Annual Conference for work that has transformed the lives of young Latinos and their families. Their dedication and success strengthen our entire community,” said Janet Murguía, President and CEO, NCLR. “We applaud these exemplary organizations and their innovative approach to helping the Hispanic communities in Kansas City and San Francisco gain access to safe credit and affordable health care.”

    Presented annually, the NCLR Family Strengthening Awards honor two NCLR-affiliated community-based organizations for their commitment to bolstering the success and strength of the Hispanic community through a combination of programs and services. Each recipient receives a $5,000 cash award to further their work in the community and their partnership with NCLR.

    Founded in 2007, Mission Asset Fund works to create a fair financial marketplace for hardworking and low-income families who lack the access and resources to reach their financial goals. The organization was recognized for its innovative Lending Circles program, a zero-interest credit-building social loans program designed to help weave low-income families into the financial mainstream. The program enables participants to build credit scores and credit histories and achieve financial stability.

    “We are thrilled to be chosen as this year’s recipient of the NCLR Family Strengthening Award,” said Jose Quinonez, CEO of Mission Asset Fund. “This recognition from NCLR helps us pave the way toward a fair financial marketplace for hardworking families in the U.S. Together, we expand access to thousands of credit invisibles across the country, ensuring they aren’t stuck with predatory loans from payday lenders and instead are building on the strengths of their community to take the next financial steps in their lives.”

    Established nearly a century ago in 1919, Guadalupe Centers, Inc. in Kansas City, Mo., is the oldest operating community-based organization for Latinos in the United States. Enhancing the quality of life for Hispanics through a comprehensive set of educational, social, recreational and cultural services, Guadalupe Centers, Inc. is improving the lives of Latino families. The group was recognized for its launch of the Guadalupe Educational Systems, a charter school program that provides a rigorous and enriching learning experience for Latino K–12 students. Through this program, Guadalupe Centers, Inc. is helping remedy the educational gaps affecting Kansas City Latinos and empowering young students to reach their full potential.

    "Throughout 96 years of service, Guadalupe Centers, Inc. has provided educational programs for the Latino community. We appreciate the collaboration with NCLR in these endeavors and are honored to receive this recognition,” said Cris Medina, CEO, Guadalupe Centers, Inc.

    El Consejo Nacional de La Raza Otorga Premios por el Fortalecimiento de la Familia a Afiliados de San Francisco y Kansas City Durante la Conferencia Anual NCLR 2015

    KANSAS CITY, Mo.-Durante el Almuerzo Nacional de Afiliados celebrado hoy durante la Conferencia Anual de NCLR en Kansas City, Mo., el Consejo Nacional de La Raza (NCLR, por sus siglas en inglés) reconoció a dos organizaciones de la comunidad que pertenecen a la Red de Afiliados de NCLR por sus destacados esfuerzos para empoderar a las familias latinas y ampliar sus oportunidades. Las organizaciones premiadas de este año son: Mission Asset Fund en San Francisco y Guadalupe Centers, Inc. en Kansas City, Mo.

    "En la Conferencia Anual NCLR 2015 rendimos homenajes a Mission Asset Fund y a Guadalupe Centers porque con su trabajo han transformado la vida de jóvenes latinos y sus familias. Su dedicación y éxito fortalecen toda nuestra comunidad ", dijo Janet Murguía, presidenta y CEO de NCLR. "Aplaudimos a estas ejemplares organizaciones ya que con su innovador enfoque ayudan a las comunidades hispanas de Kansas City y San Francisco para tener acceso al crédito seguro y al cuidado de salud asequible".

    Cada año se otorgan Premios por el Fortalecimiento de la Familia a dos organizaciones comunitarias, afiliadas a NCLR, por su exitoso compromiso con la comunidad hispana al ofrecer una combinación de programas y servicios. Cada una de estas organizaciones recibe un premio en efectivo de $5,000 para continuar su trabajo en la comunidad y su asociación con NCLR.

    Fundado en 2007, Mission Asset Fund trabaja para crear un mercado financiero justo para las familias trabajadoras y de bajos ingresos que carecen de acceso y recursos para alcanzar sus metas financieras. La organización fue reconocida por su innovador programa de Lending Circles, un programa de préstamos establecido a cero interés que se diseñó para ayudar a que las familias de bajos ingresos pudiesen integrarse al mundo de las finanzas prevalecientes. El programa permite que los participantes puedan tener un buen puntaje para su historial crediticio y de esa manera lograr su estabilidad financiera.

    "Nos sentimos muy felices de que este año nos hayan elegido para recibir el Premio al Fortalecimiento de la Familia NCLR", dijo José Quiñonez, Director General de Mission Asset Fund. "Este reconocimiento de NCLR nos ayuda a allanar el camino hacia un mercado financiero justo para las familias trabajadoras de los EE.UU. Con la colaboración de NCLR hemos ampliado el acceso a miles de créditos invisibles en todo el país, asegurando que quienes solicitan los créditos no queden atrapados por prestamistas que otorgan préstamos a intereses abusivos y, en su lugar, establezcan fuertes bases en su comunidad para luego seguir avanzando financieramente en sus vidas".

    Fundada hace casi un siglo, en 1919, Guadalupe Centers, Inc. en Kansas City, Missouri, es la organización de base comunitaria más antigua que trabaja para ayudar a los latinos en los Estados Unidos. Guadalupe Centers Inc. mejora la calidad de vida de las familias hispanas a través de un amplio conjunto de servicios educativos, sociales, recreativos y culturales. El grupo fue reconocido por haber lanzado los Sistemas Educativos de Guadalupe, un programa de escuela autónoma que proporciona una experiencia de aprendizaje riguroso y enriquecedor para estudiantes latinos desde Kindergarten hasta el Grado12. A través de este programa, Guadalupe Centers, Inc. ayuda a remediar las carencias educativas que afectan a los latinos de Kansas City y al mismo ha ayudado a potenciar la capacidad de los jóvenes estudiantes.

    "A lo largo de sus 96 años de servicio, Guadalupe Centers, Inc. ha ofrecido programas educativos para la comunidad latina. Agradecemos la colaboración que hemos recibido de NCLR y nos sentimos muy honrados que hayan reconocido nuestros esfuerzos", dijo Cris Medina, Director General de Guadalupe Centers, Inc.

    El Consejo Nacional de La Raza (NCLR, por sus siglas en inglés) –la organización nacional más grande de apoyo y defensa de los derechos civiles de los hispanos en los Estados Unidos– trabaja para mejorar las oportunidades de los estadounidenses hispanos.
