Obama, Clinton to Speak at Congressional Hispanic Caucus Inst. Gala

President Barack Obama and Democratic presidential nominee Hilary Clinton will address a large and influential Latino audience during the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Obama and Clinton will speak before the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) for their 39th Annual Awards Gala on Thursday, Sept. 15th.

CHCI is the non-profit arm of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. The gala brings in many of Washington's Hispanics as well as national gathering of public, and private sector leaders.

President Obama first addressed the CHCI back in 2008 when he was just a presidential candidate. Almost a decade later, this will be Obama's last time speaking at the gala as President of the United States.

"CHCI is proud to once again welcome President Obama to our Gala and to thank his administration for supporting Latino leadership over the past eight years," said Rep. Linda T. Sánchez, CHCI Chair.

"We also look forward to hearing from Secretary Clinton to talk about her work on issues that impact Latino families, and how she would empower the Latino community if elected President", said Sánchez.

The festivities will include the presentation of the CHCI 2016 American Dream Medallion of Excellence in Education, Science, Medicine or Civil Rights.
