CHCI Joins Nation in Mourning, Cancels Wednesday, January 12 Event

CHCI, its board of directors, and advisory council share the nation’s shock and grief over the tragic and senseless shooting in Tucson, Arizona on Saturday morning. All of our thoughts and prayers are with Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, her family, and all the families who lost loved ones.

"Gabby is a great leader for her district, a dear colleague, and a strong supporter of the Latino community in Tucson," said Rep. Charles A. Gonzalez, CHCI Chair. "We pray for the Congresswoman's full recovery and for all the victims and their families impacted by this tragic incident."

Out of respect, CHCI will postpone until February the celebratory Chair’s induction dinner, scheduled for Wednesday, January 12.

CHCI is the premier Hispanic leadership development organization and has launched generations of young Latino leaders to guide our nation. Today, the U.S. needs skilled, competent and ethical leaders more than ever to move our country toward unity and peace.
