Commission On Hispanic Affairs
The Washington State Commission on Hispanic Affairs (CHA) was created by a Governor’s Executive Order and was then established in statute in 1971. CHA fulfills its mandated mission by: identifying and defining issues concerning the rights and needs of Washington’s Hispanic/Latinx community; advising the Governor and state agencies on the development of relevant policies, plans and programs that affect Hispanic/Latinx residents; advising the Legislature on issues of concern to Washington’s Hispanic/Latinx community; and establishing relationships with state agencies, local governments and members of the private sector.
The Washington State Commission on Hispanic Affairs improves public policy development and the delivery of government services to the Hispanic/Latinx community.
