The National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators (NHCSL) took bold stances on issues that affect the Latino community”and NBCSL President Gregory Porter was right there as the organization convened at its 16th Annual Summit in San Diego last weekend. NCHL for the first time, waded into the gun safety issue, calling for universal background checks and other important gun reform measures in one of a series of resolutions approved by the group at the summit. President Porter, along with other members of the Quad Caucus, were in attendance.

I also want to thank my fellow chairs of the Quad Caucus of Legislators of Color who came to our summit and, for the first time outside the Quad, the four of us stood together for a common purpose: to unite as one when it comes to the issues we all care about. That is why my sincerest gracias go out to Rep. Gregory Porter (IN), Chair of the National Black Caucus of State Legislators (NBCSL); Sen. Benny Shendo (NM), Chair of the National Caucus of Native American State Legislators (NCNASL); and Rep. Kyle Yamashita (HI), Chair of the National Asian Pacific American Caucus of State Legislators (NAPACSL) for attending our summit and for their partnership for all of our communities, NHCSL President, Senator Carmelo Ríos (PR) said.
