Groundbreaking Partnership with Facebook to Extend CHCI’s Reach during Hispanic Heritage Month

CHCI is proud to announce that Facebook will be the official social media partner for its 2012 Hispanic Heritage Month (HHM) events, which will be held September 10-13 in Washington, D.C. 

Facebook’s presence, especially during the Public Policy Conference, will help CHCI extend its reach and generate a national dialogue on issues that affect the Latino community.  Integrating Facebook’s platform will help connect powerful Hispanic leaders with a wider audience and enable real time, two-way communication that will mark a considerable technological upgrade for CHCI’s events.  It will also engage even more young Latinos through a communication channel that many interact with daily, significantly expanding CHCI’s ability to positively impact this critical audience.
