“The mission of the Nuestro Pueblo Awards celebration is to promote community involvement and advancement of our Hispanic cultural heritage by recognizing individuals and/or organizations that are making a difference in “Nuestro Pueblo” (our community). Net proceeds will benefit the UNIDOS and HAAC scholarship funds,” said a statement on HAAC’s website.
The Hispanic Association of Atlantic County (HAAC) was founded by a group of Latinos determined to advocate for the Hispanic community, foster networking and promote the diverse Hispanic cultural heritage.
Stockton Unidos, based out of Stockton University, is an organization made up of students and supporters dedicated to expanding cultural and historical awareness of the contributions the Latino and Hispanic community has provided to humanity.
