"Tennessee's future economic and cultural strength will also be shaped by our emergent Hispanic community. New 2010 U.S Census data shows a steady population growth; and the more we grow as a business community, as individuals and residents of Nashville, the more we will be able to give back. It is a continuing trend, and now Hispanics represent more than 50.5 million in the nation and 10% of Nashville's population. During Hispanic Heritage Month, we celebrate and recognize the importance and influence of Hispanics in our communities. Having a wide variety of business and community partners participating this year will help us raise the awareness and significance. With every person, we build one more bridge for the common good", said Yuri Cunza, President of the Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
During Hispanic Heritage Month the NAHCC recognizes the professional, civic and business contributions of members & non-members in our community.
