Julian Canete, President and CEO of the California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce (CHCC), and CHCC Chairman Frank Montes issued the following joint statement regarding the racial violence that occurred two days ago in downtown Charlottesville:
“The CHCC strongly condemns the acts of hate, bigotry and racial violence that took place in Charlottesville on Saturday. The actions that took place in Charlottesville contradict American values of diversity, inclusion, and mutual respect.”
The CHCC’s thoughts and prayers are with those individuals and families affected by the tragedy that occurred this weekend in Virginia.
The CHCC and our local Hispanic chambers are committed to advancing diversity, equity, educational and economic opportunity as pillars of the democratic tenets of Hispanic Chambers of Commerce throughout this great nation.
