Did you know that Sacramento County jumped from the seventh to the third most diverse county in California between 2010 and 2020? And, while the majority racial or ethnic group in the state was white in 2010, it’s now Hispanic! That’s right, we are now the largest ethnic group around the country, the state and locally in our Greater Sacramento region.
Our annual State of Hispanics is coming up on September 21st, we’ll be deep diving into this topic plus, discuss important trends in entrepreneurship, education, civic engagement, and business in our Hispanic communities.
Last year, we held our event 100% virtually as we were in the midst of the pandemic; this September, our event will look a little different. We’re still honored that our partner the Golden 1 Center will be opening their doors to assemble delegates from across the region to join us in-person at an invitation only event, plus, we will also be making this event available to all of you virtually.
For more than 10 years, this annual event has been highlighting the impact and influence of Hispanics/Latinos in Sacramento and beyond. This year, we’re excited to debut an inaugural economic report that we cannot wait to share with you which will set the foundation for an equitable and lasting recovery.
