The cinematographic series “Profession: Photographer'' is a series concentrating on portraying each of the female photographers that will make up the series. The project aims to understand in depth the creators behind their work through a close and intimate encounter and their vision of life. This project was possible due to an award given by the Peruvian Ministry of Culture that allowed the project to do most of the filming. However, shortly after starting the recordings, Covid-19 has forced them to stop production. For more information please refer to the link:

The holiday season is upon us and the Center would like to share what alumni are doing to assist our communities during these times. From the Class of 2020 Governor’s Hispanic Fellows Program, Amarilis Rodriguez is a senior at Seton Hall University, majoring in biology and minoring in chemistry. Amarilis became the founder of Baskets for Neighbors, a faith-based organization that aims to reduce hunger and food insecurity (especially among Latinx populations in need). Amarilis shares, “In 2017, I founded Baskets for Neighbors, a nonprofit organization aimed at reducing hunger and food insecurity in my disadvantaged community of Perth Amboy, NJ. With my family’s help, we hand-deliver food baskets to families suffering from poverty, hunger, illness, domestic violence, and homelessness. In doing so, we intend to give not only food and toiletries, but the well-needed love and support they deserve.” Thank you for making a difference and impacting the lives of many New Jersey residents!

The Center had the pleasure of attending the first cohort of AIC-ConvivirHub’s Workforce Development Program in Hammonton, NJ. This program assists youth in professional development by sharpening their skills, working on resumes, and participating in mock interviews. The program also invites parents to participate in their Decision-Making session, where it is discussed how to properly brainstorm when making a difficult decision in their lives. This program is doing a great job at not only uplifting the youth in NJ, but also engaging their families. We are proud to be funders and supporters of the Workforce Development Program!

Last Friday, the Center and AMAR Community Doula Program celebrated the second cohort of doulas that completed the training and are currently working towards certification. The Center is proud to fund the only HC1 doula program for Hispanic women in New Jersey. The Children's Home Society of New Jersey’s AMAR program serves primarily immigrant and Hispanic families in Trenton, NJ. The program trains women to become certified doulas and provides high quality services resulting in healthy deliveries. AMAR birth outcomes exceed state national outcomes: 98% of babies are born full-term and healthy birth weight; 95% of babies do not need the NICU; and 91% of mothers initiate breastfeeding in the hospital. We are honored to be part of this impactful program!

How did the Governor's Hispanic Fellows Program inspire alumni in their careers? Today, we highlight alumni Cristhofer Moreira.

Cristhofer Moreira is a Senior Dual Public Health and Communication Studies Major at The College of New Jersey. A two-time alumni, Cristhofer worked with CHPRD as a Covid-Compliance AI Re-entry Business Analyst with Xerox Workplace Solutions in 2020. He then proceeded to continue with our Governor's Hispanic Fellows program in 2021, while working as a Public Health intern for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. He is working towards graduation while preparing for a gap year and applying to fellowship programs. We wish Cristhofer the best of luck in his endeavors in his aspirations towards becoming a Public Health attorney!

This past weekend CHPRD joined the Coalition of Peruvian Leaders and Institutions for their annual conference along key community stakeholders, Mayor Andre Sayegh, and Senator Nellie Pou. The conference was centered around the experiences of Peruvian immigrants and how as a community, we can advocate together. The Center’s Director, Sara Peña, shared resources and the Center's commitment to supporting all Hispanic/Latinx throughout the Garden State since 1975. She mentioned the grant opportunities for non profits and the Governor's Fellows Internship Program now entering its 34th year. CHPRD serves as the leadership pipeline for the next generation of leaders in NJ.
