- The Commission on Hispanic Affairs Spanish Language Outreach Radio Program, "Conozca su Gobierno con Uriel Iñiguez"
This is a live radio broadcast that airs every Tuesday on Radio Luz 1680 AM and Radio Cadena 91.9 FM, and every Thursday on Radio Juan 1210 AM, Radio Cadena 91.9 FM, Centralia College Radio 91.3 FM, and Skagit Valley College radio 90.1 FM.
Every week on this program we bring state agency representatives live on the air to discuss topics in Spanish that are relevant to the Latino community. The public has the opportunity to call in and speak directly with agency representatives. Radio is a very important means of communication for our community, and this type of information is not usually readily available for monolingual Spanish speakers, which makes this program very valuable.
With your donations we can help to broaden our broadcast range by partnering with more Spanish radio stations, and reach many more listeners.
- Washington State Latino/Hispanic Assessment Report
This report is compiled every 2 years by the Commission. Top researchers in their fields write articles about the history of Latinos in Washington, the economic development of our community, social issues, education, health, immigration, and other issues that strongly affect Hispanics. Our commissioners distribute this report to the public in community meetings, and its most important function is to aid legislators in making policy decisions. The assessment contains policy recommendations made by professors, researchers, and commissioners.
With the help of donations, we can expand the areas of research, and better educate our legislators and the general public about the state of Hispanics in Washington.
- Leading Change Through Advocacy
This is a project which began this year after we received a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The goal of the project is to draw together parents, community members, and leaders to learn about Washington's educational system and how to better advocate for Hispanic children in public schools. The Commission, partnering with several Hispanic-serving agencies and organizations, is providing a series of trainings for Commissioners, parents, and the community. The focus is to increase the level of understanding regarding the opportunities and the achievement gap that exists, and together craft doable action plans.
With your help, we can continue to sustain this project by creating more tranings, and expand them to more sites across the state.
