Tennessean interviews Cunza

The Tennessean published an interview of Yuri Cunza, President of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce*. Here is an excerpt:

"What does Nashville not understand about the Hispanic community that you think it should?"

"I'm sure there are a lot of things that are not known to Nashville. I don't know about all the population myself."

"It's such a challenge to bring communities together when there are differences that are cultural and also language. It's going to take the ones that were able to become bilingual to help, to create opportunities for that interaction to occur."

"I would not wish our population of Hispanics to be respected and considered just because we can buy."

Full interview with Yuri Cunza

*There are two Hispanic chambers of commerce in Nashville: the Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and the Tennessee Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
