In 2024, the Hispanic Alliance and its partners are convening people from diverse industries, backgrounds, and cultures to shine a light on the opportunities to engage the growing Hispanic population in building prosperous communities across the Palmetto State.

We hope you will join us as we foster dialogue and collaboration to build bridges towards equitable policies and a thriving future for all South Carolinians.

A Partnership By:

Allied4Art is a partnership between the Hispanic Alliance and the South Carolina Arts Commission to explore the arts’ potential to create space for dialogue, knowledge, and cultural understanding.

Hosted at the historic Gibbes Arts Museum on August 22 at 5pm, guests will explore a curated exhibit featuring diverse works by Hispanic artists, followed by a conversation on how to build a more inclusive arts culture and environment in SC. The discussion will focus on discoveries from a statewide Hispanic Arts Assessment completed by the Hispanic Alliance and the South Carolina Arts Commission in 2023.

This project is funded in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Please join the Hispanic Alliance and Ten at the Top for a dialogue to explore opportunities to engage the growing Hispanic workforce in building a thriving economy in the Palmetto State.

The conversation will center on the potential positive economic impact of H.3288. If signed into law, this bill would make holders of current and valid employment authorization eligible for occupational or professional licensure to work in South Carolina, resulting in millions of dollars in economic output and tax revenue.
