▪ American organization

      In addition to assisting Hispanic women in obtaining such leadership roles, NCHW works to ameliorate the general economic and social opportunities for Hispanics; members of the organization represent Hispanic interests at national conferences and in public policy debates. NCHW is also concerned with incorporating the Hispanic community into mainstream American society. The organization holds an annual conference and publishes a quarterly newsletter to keep its members informed about public policy issues affecting the Hispanic community.
