Hispanic Roundtable Convención Hispana 2016
Kickoff Event
Moncho's Bar & Grill
July 28, 2016

The Hispanic Roundtable is hosting Convención Hispana 2016 on Saturday October 8, 2016 at Max S. Hayes High School in Cleveland. The Hispanic Roundtable is a not for profit organization whose mission is “to act as a catalyst to empower the Hispanic Community to become full partners in economic, education, political, civic and social life of Greater Cleveland.”

Convención Hispana is held every 3 years and is a free assembly providing education, empowerment, health and workforce development resources for Northeast Ohio's Latino community.

The 2013 event featured a keynote speech by then rising star Mayor Julian Castro of San Antonio, TX. He is currently the United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

The 2016 keynote speaker will be the legendary Puerto Rican-American actress and singer Rita Moreno. Ms Moreno is one of twelve performers to have won all four major annual American entertainment awards: an Oscar, an Emmy, a Grammy and a Tony. She is perhaps best known for supporting roles in the musical films The King and I and West Side Story.

Convención Hispana will feature:

  • Live Music & Food
  • Job Fair
  • Resource Fair with 100+ booths
  • Free health screenings
  • Workshops
  • Raflles & Kid's Crafts
It will be held at Max S. Hayes High School at 2211 West 65th Sreet Cleveland 44102. The hours are 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM. More details on Convención Hispana.

Hispanic Roundtable Chairman Jose Feliciano and Debbie and Dan Hanson of ClevelandPeople.Com invited over 100 leaders of various ethnic communities in Cleveland to a preview event at Moncho's Bar & Grill where he explained the Convención and urged them to inform their communities.
