For the first time ever, the Hispanic Latino Commission of Michigan is taking their annual dinner to the west side of the State. For as long as anyone can remember, the dinner was always held in Lansing. In 2017, Detroit played host as the Executive Director Felipe Lopez-Sustaita sought to include cities other than Lansing. After moving the event to Saginaw in 2018, west Michigan was the logical choice.
The event is a combination of a dinner followed by awards with attendance usually around 300 folks. Please mark you calendar as Statewide, this is a can’t miss event for everyone and once registration opens, it will fill up fast. For sponsorship opportunities or just more information please contact the Hispanic Latino Commission of Michigan.
The Commission exists to advocate for the well-being of the Hispanic/Latino population with the vision of achieving an environment of social justice and economic parity for the Hispanic/Latino population. The Hispanic/Latino Commission is composed by 15 member Commission under the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. The commissioners are appointed by the Governor of Michigan, for three-year terms, subject to the advice and consent of the State Senate. For the commission to communicate with Hispanic-led organizations, community leaders, and the general public, it is required to have no fewer than six meetings a year that may be scheduled in various parts of the state.
Executive Director: Felipe Lopez-Sustaita ph. 517-373-8339
