JOB OPPORTUNITY: The Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute (CHLI) is currently seeking a Day of Photographer in Miami, FL, for an upcoming event. This opportunity is for students currently enrolled, both Undergrad and Graduate.

Founded in 2003, CHLI is a 501(c)3 non-profit and non-partisan organization. CHLI is dedicated to fostering a broad awareness of the diversity of thought, heritage, interests and views of Americans of Hispanic and Portuguese descent. CHLI prepares, connects and honors leaders. CHLI prepares future leaders through internships, scholarships and conferences that involve public service, leadership development, and business and academic excellence. CHLI connects public service and business leaders through briefings on the Hill, breakfast forums with Members of Congress, and networking receptions throughout the country. CHLI honors leaders at the Annual Gala & Leadership Awards and recognizes Congressional Staff for their leadership with the Stephen Vermillion CHLI Congressional Staff Appreciation Award.

We are seeking a Day of Photographer for, Friday, June 15th from 6:30-8:30 pm, in Miami FL.

Last month at our annual Gala and Leadership Awards in Washington, CHLI honored Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL) for her extraordinary service and legacy. CHLI presented her with the inaugural, The CHLI Ileana Ros-Lehtinen International Leadership Award,” which will be granted annually.

Rep. Ros-Lehtinen has a long history of advocating for human rights in our country and throughout the world. Her record of driving change and engaging with local and global communities has made her an effective member of Congress, and a voice for many who need to be heard in the corridors of power. She has worked tirelessly to give voice to the people of Tibet. She has stood up for the LGBT community. Actor and Humanitarian Activist Richard Gere and Olympic Gold Medalist and Transgender Activist Caitlyn Jenner, both whom the Congresswoman has worked closely with to advance human rights issues, joined CHLI’s special tribute as speakers at the Gala.

The celebration in honor of Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen continues in Miami! This event will directly benefit young Hispanic college students learning to be our country’s future leaders, through our Global Leaders Program.
