Providence, RI- The Center for Hispanic Policy and Advocacy (CHisPA) recently announced the layoff of Executive Director Michelle Cortes-Harkins, who helped transition CHisPA through the previous director’s departure and spearheaded the organization’s recent development.

"We wish Michelle every continued success and offer our sincere thanks to her for all her contributions to CHisPA" said Doris Blanchard, Chair of the CHisPA Board of Directors.  “Unfortunately, in the current economy the non-profit sector has been hit particularly hard, and in the interest of maintaining our current level of programming and service to the Hispanic community, we have been forced to make some very difficult decisions.”

Ms. Carola Campos, Health Programs Director, will be the main contact person and, together with the Board of Directors, overseeing the implementation of future initiatives.  Ms. Blanchard remarked that "the staff and Board of Directors will continue with their commitment ensuring that even in these difficult times, we can continue broadening CHisPA’s appeal, services and membership."

The current staff members, other employees, and the Board of Directors will help implement a newly adopted strategic plan.


CHisPA is one of the area's leading non- profit organizations for advancing the rights and education of the Hispanic community in Rhode Island, working to promote cultural and economic growth through leadership, partnerships, and programs in the community.
