Recognizing 26 Latino Leaders in Little Village 

Chicago (HINA) – Negocios Now announces its first list of “Los 26 de la 26”, an initiative launched alongside The Little Village Chamber of Commerce  (LVCC) to recognize and celebrate leadership.

   “Los 26 de la 26 is a symbol intended to honor members of the Little Village community with a clear Latino identity and cultural pride that welcomes all people who dream of a better future for their families and the City of Chicago,” said Clemente Nicado, Publisher.

  The initiative is another example of the many collaborations Negocios Now has launched to recognize the impact of our community.
