Bridgewater, NJ (June 22, 2011) – Daniel R. Guadalupe, a Member of the Bridgewater-based law firm of Norris McLaughlin, P.A., was appointed to the Advisory Committee of the Center for Hispanic Policy, Research, and Development (CHPRD).
In approving the appointments, Governor Chris Christie noted, “As our state’s largest and fastest growing ethnic group, the Hispanic community is critically important to New Jersey’s continued success as a state and I value the work the Center for Hispanic Policy, Research and Development does. For more than three decades, they have helped hundreds of students and thousands of families realize their very own American dream. As we move forward, I’m proud that my Administration is working hard to elevate the role the Center plays in the Garden State and these individuals will help in guiding the future of the Center.”
Created in 1975, CHPRD and its Advisory Committee work to empower New Jersey’s Hispanic community and serve as a resource for state government on Hispanic affairs. As part of their mandate, CHPRD has aggressively sought to increase public-private investment for community based organizations, administer an annual grant program, and facilitate professional and leadership development for college students through its competitive internship and fellowship program.
