Local leaders also scheduled to address southwestern regional conference  

WASHINGTON, Sept. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Hispanic Leadership Network (HLN), a Hispanic center-right advocacy action group, today announced that U.S. Representative Francisco "Quico" Canseco (TX), U.S. Representative Raul Labrador (ID), U.S. Representative Steve Pearce (NM) and U.S. Representative Pete Sessions (TX) will address the HLN's regional conference in New Mexico later this month.  The "Rebuilding America's Dream" conference is a two-day event that will bring together elected officials and Hispanic grassroots leaders from around the country. The conference will be held in the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque on Friday, September 23rd and Saturday, September 24th.  

Additional confirmed speakers include New Mexico Secretary-Designate of Public Education Hanna Skandera, New Mexico Economic Development Secretary-Designate Jon Barela, and former United States Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.  

"There is growing momentum for the HLN's southwestern regional conference," said HLN Executive Director Jennifer Sevilla-Korn. "The American Dream is at risk due to a stagnant unemployment rate as well as out of control government spending and regulation, and Hispanics are being disproportionately affected. New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez, national congressional leaders, and New Mexico state officials will help articulate concrete solutions to the difficult policy issues facing the Hispanic community and all Americans."

The conference's panel discussions will focus on the nation's economic crisis, education policy, immigration reform, home ownership, and health care. There will also be a special event to celebrate Hispanic youth.

The Hispanic Leadership Network is an advocacy action group focused on engaging the Hispanic community on center-right policies based on the principles of freedom, limited government and individual empowerment. HLN serves as a home  for center-right Hispanic advocates across the country whose goal is to restore opportunity and prosperity in America.
