About CHCI

In 1978, a small group of Hispanic Members of Congress established CHCI with the vision of bringing the promise of the American Dream to the next generation of Latinos. CHCI was founded on three pillars for success: education attainment and college access, leadership development, and access to a powerful network of Latino leaders.

Today, CHCI is the nation’s premier Hispanic nonprofit and nonpartisan 501 (c)(3) leadership organization that develops the next generation of Latino leaders by building upon those same three pillars. 

For 36 years, CHCI has empowered strong, effective, and committed Latino leaders who are actively changing the economic and public policy landscape in the United States. In 2014 we honor this legacy as we celebrate Building Our Future, Together.
