'We're not done yet'| First founders of HBPA visited the center, a new project coming soon

Updated: Dec 28, 2023

Founders of the first Hispanic Association in Spokane visited, what they one day started, Nuestras Raíces Centro Comunitario, formerly known as HBPA.

Last Wednesday was an emotional and memorable day for Nuestras Raices Centro Comunitario (NRCC), formerly known as HBPA.

Some founders of HBPA, first named the Inland Empire Hispanic Association, visited the center. The association was the first Hispanic group funded in Spokane in the 1980s.

During their visit, they got to see the growth and evolution the association has had throughout the years. They shared anecdotes, special memories, challenges, and successful outcomes while leading the organizations back then.

"They paved the way for so many of us. Truly an inspiration to be among wise minds," NRCC Executive Director Fernanda Mazcot said.

This wouldn't be the last time they met. The center said an exciting project is coming!
