Washington, DC – Below is a statement from the National Hispanic Leadership Conference on the 2010 U.S. Census:

«The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC) and the Jesse Miranda Center for Hispanic Christian Leadership believe that Latinos, regardless of faith or legal status, should participate in the 2010 U.S. Census. For our communities, the benefits of participating in the census are essential to accurate representation, allocation of resources, and to gauge how our community continues to grow. The clear majority of Latino advocacy and faith organizations support the efforts of the U.S. Census Bureau to count each person in America in 2010, including the traditionally undercounted Hispanic population.», stated Rev. Wilfredo De Jesus, Vice President of Social Justice for the NHCLC.

As the Nation’s largest Hispanic Faith Organization, the NHCLC, the sister organization of the National Association of Evangelicals and it’s research arm the Jesse Miranda Center for Hispanic Christian Leadership, provide leadership , fellowship, networking, partnerships and social justice platforms for the Hispanic Evangelical community addressing a myriad of issues ranging from immigration reform to poverty alleviation.

«More than ever we need all Hispanics counted. I am convinced that the 2010 census will enable our nation to recognize the sheer potential of this ever increasing demographic and the value added reality our community will provide to the corporate American Experience», explained Dr. Jesse Miranda, NHCLC Chief Executive Officer.
