The Hispanic Roundtable is inviting the entire community to Convención Hispana 2019. This FREE event highlights a job fair, a community health and resource fair including free health screenings, important topics such as civic and education issues, food, music, activities & face painting for children, and fun for the entire family. The keynote speaker will be the legendary Puerto Rican singer, José Feliciano, musician, singer and composer, best known for many international hits, including his rendition of The Doors,’ Light My Fire and the best-selling Christmas single, Feliz Navidad.
Convención Hispana, held every three (3) years, focuses on education, empowerment, health, and workforce & economic development.

Our doors are open; we want to transform our community,” says José C. Feliciano, Chairman of the Hispanic Roundtable.
