The Republican National Hispanic Assembly is an American political organization founded in 1967 which seeks to promote Hispanic-American issues and interests within the Republican Party, and the Party’s interests and candidates within the Hispanic-American population. The group is partially an outgrowth of the Spanish Speaking Advisory Committee of the Republican National Committee, which itself was created as a response to successful efforts to attract Hispanic-American voters to the presidential candidacy of Richard Nixon.
The mission of the RNHA is to increase Hispanic-Americans participation in electoral politics at all levels as well as boost Hispanic-Americans membership in the Republican Party. Furthermore, the RNHA seeks to promote the philosophy and political ideology of the Party within the Hispanic-American community. Finally, the RNHA desires to create and sustain an association of Hispanic-Americans Republican leaders. To that end, a series of objectives- as posted on their official web site- were formulated:
- To promote the core principles and values of Republicanism throughout the Hispanic-American community in the United States
- To develop and maintain a strong, effective and informed Republican Hispanic-American constituency throughout the country.
To recruit and encourage qualified, Hispanic-Americans, as registered Republicans, to seek office at all levels of government.
To ensure candidates who represent the true values of Republicanism are elected to office and continue to represent those values.
To adopt resolutions and policy positions on local, state and national issues and to seek to implement these resolutions and policy positions through networks of the Republican Party and other appropriate means.
To promote and encourage civic participation.
To insure the participation of citizens of Hispanic heritage in the American political process and in all levels of the Republican Party.
