Hispanic/Latino Alliance for Change and Equity

The mission of HACE (Hispanic/Latino Alliance for Change and Equity) is to educate and engage the Penn community about issues that affect the Hispanic and Latino community in Philadelphia, nationally, and globally. Through programming and advocacy efforts, the group strives to build social awareness through issues related to Latinos, and addresses the role that social work practice and policy can serve towards the needs of the fastest growing minority group in the United States.
