The Hispanic and Immigrant Affairs Board advises City Council on barriers that impact the Hispanic and immigrant community in social, economic, and vocational pursuits.
The Raleigh City Council created the commission as an advisory body in February 2020. The creation of the commission is to make Raleigh a more welcoming city:
- Need to be inclusive of Hispanic and immigrant residents in civic matters
- Recognize that there is a language barrier
- Create an opportunity for collaboration and stronger community engagement with immigrant communities.
