#CHCI35 /#VoiceYourVote. On Thursday, September 13th, Vice President Joe Biden will speak at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s (#CHCI35) 35th Anniversary Awards Gala at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

CHCI, established by a small group of Hispanic Members of Congress in 1978, serves nearly 1,700 young Latinos annually with educational services and leadership development designed to promote college readiness and provide direct access for students to national political leadership. CHCI awards $400,000 every year in college scholarships to Latino students with financial need.

Hispanics will continue become part of a surge in growth of America’s labor force in the coming decades.  Hispanics account for 60 percent of the nation’s population growth between 2005 and 2050 and approximately 1 of every 4 students in K-12 public education is Hispanic.
