The Baltimore City Hispanic Commission was established by a City Council ordinance in 2007 to serve as a liaison between Baltimore’s Hispanic community and Baltimore City government entities.

The Commission researches and monitors issues and policies affecting Baltimore’s Hispanic/Latino population, and recommends legislative and policy solutions to the Mayor, the City Council, City agencies and other organizations.

Finally, the Hispanic Commission promotes awareness of Hispanic/Latino culture to Baltimore’s citizens, officials, and business leaders.


Board meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of every month (5:00p.m.-7:00p.m.).
