‘Convención 2010’ kicks off with José Feliciano, Jr.

Convención Hispana 2010 had a wonderful kick-off, August 28, 2009, at Reinberger Auditorium at El Barrio.  The event was sponsored by The Hispanic Roundtable Community Programs and its Civic Involvement Committee, chaired by José Feliciano, Jr., who also is president of the Young Latino Network, and Jerry Peña.

The event was an overview of Convención 2010, now scheduled for October 2010. Mr. Feliciano, Jr. chaired the event and discussion of the documentary, Soy Boricua, Pa, Que, Tu Lo Sepas, produced by Rosie Pérez of Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing fame.

The film was the platform from which Feliciano, Jr. led a discussion regarding the challenges faced by all Latinos, including identity, education, political power, and economic development.  “La falta de respecto” was a key theme.

The sponsor of the event, including a reception, was the Nielson Corporation, which was represented by María Boss, Vice President of Hispanic Initiatives for GAP Communications.

José C. Feliciano, Sr., Chairman and founder of the Hispanic Roundtable, discussed the Convención process and how it is a unique community organizing event in the United States, which provides an opportunity for the Latino community to identify, empower, and inspire the Latino community to address their fundamental issues.  

The president of The Hispanic Roundtable Community Programs, which actually sponsors the Convención, is Andrés González, who was instrumental in organizing the evening.

The event was attended by approximately 80 participants—most were young Latinos.
