Bienvenido Brings Their Conservative Message to Los Angeles, CA

On the weekend of October 4th, Bienvenido, a nonpartisan grassroots organization that helps promote conservatism throughout the United States, joined forces with a group of young Hispanic influencers and took its message to Los Angeles, California. Bienvenido translates to “welcome” in English. The organization’s mission is to welcome individuals with conservative values and promote conservative ideals in the Hispanic American community.

While promoting its conservative message in Los Angeles, Bienvenido also celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month. Hispanic Heritage Month is the period from September 15 to October 15 when people recognize and celebrate the many contributions of Hispanic Americans. Hispanic men and women who embody the American values of hard work, patriotism, and devotion to faith and family through their countless contributions as leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs were recognized during this event.

According to Bienvenidos’s president and founder, Abraham Enriquez, and vice president, Drew Hernandez, the organization’s primary goal is to “make people think rather than telling them what to think.”

Among the speakers was Enriquez, who spoke about the power that individuals have to shape their personal narratives and about the fact that Hispanics are the fastest-growing ethnic group in the United States. According to Enriquez, Hispanics have the power to debunk the media’s narrative about Hispanics not holding any conservative values.

Hernandez, who is the host and creator of the political show Lives Matter, which can be found on YouTube and Instagram, spoke about engaging Hispanic culture through faith in God and about how it is essential that conservatives penetrate the mainstream media.

Ximena Barreto, business development director and political advisor for Engineered Tax Services, serves as press secretary and director of investor relations for Bienvenido. Barreto shared her story about coming to the United States legally from Colombia, becoming a US citizen, losing family members to drug cartels, and achieving the American dream.

Gia Chacon is a Christian political speaker, humanitarian, and blogger and is the pro-life director of Bienvenido. Chacon spoke about how Hispanic Americans can change the current culture to restore the value of human life and dignity.

Emma Jimenez, the mentorship program director for Bienvenido, is a freelance political blogger, conservative advocate, and writer for the Republican National Hispanic Assembly (RNHA). She shared her immigration story, her fulfillment of the American dream, and her reasons for supporting legal immigration.

Anthony Cabassa, conservative activist, state chairman of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly in California, and a former Department of Homeland Security agent; spoke about his firsthand experience dealing with issues at the border such as human trafficking.

The event provided a platform for many young Hispanic conservative influencers who want to make positive changes in their communities. Many of these young individuals feel they have been misrepresented by the mainstream media and not acknowledged at all for their core values of faith, family, and freedom.
