Rep. Alonso Sandoval Attends the National Hispanic Council of State Legislators Executive Committee Meeting
OKLAHOMA CITY –Rep. Alonso Sandoval, D-Oklahoma City, an executive committee member of the National Hispanic State Legislators Council, recently attended their summer executive committee meeting in San Francisco.
"I am happy to share that during the spring of this year, I was appointed to serve as a member of NHCSL’s Executive Committee, representing the South Region for the 2022-2023 term. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity because it means that I will contribute to the committee governing NHCSL, inclusive of our policy and organizational agenda to advocate on behalf of the growing Latino and Hispanic communities,” Rep. Alonso Sandoval said. “As a young Latino legislator, I look forward to collaborating with my colleagues to amplify the concerns, aspirations, and potential of our community, not just in Oklahoma but throughout the nation.”
At the meeting, elected leaders from all across the United States explored three main issues including criminal justice reform. Other important topics of discussion for Hispanic communities included affordable housing and accessible home ownership and funding opportunities for states under the U.S. Economic Development Administration.
“It’s crucial that conversations around these topics happen in rooms like this, analyzing them through a Latino lens, so we can guarantee that the conclusions and recommendations we put forward have our impacted communities at its core and not as an afterthought,” NHCSL President Sen. Nellie Pou (NJ) said.
