    A RESOLUTION recognizing Hispanic Student Outreach Days.

    Whereas, Hispanic Student Outreach Days at the statehouse is an opportunity for Hispanic youth to learn more about state government;

    Whereas, Hispanic Student Outreach Days was organized in conjunction with the House of Representatives Student Services Office, the Mexican Consulate, and the Indianapolis Hispanic Chamber of Commerce;

    Whereas, The Students Service Office has dedicated April 8 and 9, 2003, as Hispanic Student Outreach Days;

    Whereas, Hispanic students who participate in this event

will have a better understanding of the services and opportunities available through state government; and

    Whereas, The Hispanic community experiences an overall lack of access to essential health, social service, and educational resources due to isolating language and cultural barriers; it is hoped that events like Hispanic Student Outreach Days can be used as a catalyst to propel students from the Hispanic community to become aware of the resources available to them and to become active citizens in Indiana: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the

General Assembly of the State of Indiana:


    SECTION 1. That the Indiana House of Representatives wishes to recognize April 8 and 9, 2003, as Hispanic Student Outreach Days and to encourage members of the Hispanic community to participate in this event.
