The Hispanic Advisory Committee to the City Manager was formally established in early 2008 to serve as a liaison between city administration and the Hispanic community. The committee advises and makes recommendations to the City Manager on current and future issues, needs, programs and services as they relate to the Hispanic community. Ultimately, the goal is to improve the quality of life for all the residents of the City of Newport News.

Since its inception, the committee has been working diligently with city staff to provide outreach and learning opportunities to the community. The committee has also made numerous recommendations to city staff on ways to improve communication with community members with limited English proficiency.

The committee is dedicated to providing leadership and advocacy that will foster the development and enrichment of our Newport News Hispanic community, and all Newport News residents.
