Representative Adriano Espaillat from Harlem will host his second annual Dominicans on the Hill, a day at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, February 6th, 2020. During the one-day event, Dominican-Americans from communities around the nation will attend workshops on issues that include topics such as the 2020 census, the state of judiciary affairs, and the role and impact of Dominicans throughout arts, sports, entertainment and culture.
“Dominican-Americans are the fifth-largest Latinx group in the United States and have a growing presence in communities around the nation,” said Rep. Espaillat. “With our growing population and representation across the U.S., it remains vital that Dominican-Americans and individuals of Dominican descent have an opportunity to let their voices be heard on the issues and concerns facing their communities around the nation.”
