Advocacy – General Fund

For 41 years, the Houston Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has been the leading advocate for the economic and civic interest of the Houston Hispanic business community.

This year, the Houston Hispanic Chamber of Commerce reaches 41 year of advocating for the economic and civic interests of the Houston Hispanic business community. Over the past forty-one years, the Chamber has evolved from a small group of active business leaders into the impactful organization with the reputation it enjoys today – the Leader of Houston’s New Majority ®.

Today, the Chamber represents the largest demographic group in the region, $60 billion in annual economic activity, and the fastest-growing voting bloc in the country.

And while we’re proud of the past 41 years, it’s now time to look forward.

Today we ask that you consider an investment in the Chamber’s Advocacy General Fund Campaign. This campaign will help support the vision of the organization for the next 41 years, and your investment will allow us to expand our advocacy and influence across the region.

We appreciate and value your on-going support.

Demographers, experts and leaders predict that simply including this question will depress response rates in immigrant households and, in particular, across the Hispanic community.
