Congratulations to our Chairman, Carlos Medina


The Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey is a great turnaround story, and Medina is its architect. The organization was on the ropes before he was elected chairman in 2012, and in the time since it has gone from deficit to surplus and more than doubted its ranks to more 2,500, making it the largest chamber by membership in the state. He also decided not to go it alone, reaching out to other similar-minded groups to get things done. Among those he has established working relationships including the African American Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey, Hispanic Bar Association of New Jersey and Hispanic Alliance of South Jersey.

2018 NJ March for Science
We as scientists, students, teachers, doctors, engineers, and concerned citizens have chosen to March for
Science to bring attention to important issues that we see as threatening the safety of our fellow citizens,
our state, our national character, and the endeavor of scientific exploration.

We march so that scientific evidence will be
taken seriously. We march because our friends and colleagues are being targeted unjustly. We march
because we are concerned about the next generation. We hope you will join us on April 14. And we hope
you will join us afterwards, for all the work that needs to be done .
