OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Nebraska Hispanic Chamber of Commerce provides networking and business growth resources for Hispanic businesses in the state. On Friday, the group held just its third in-person breakfast in more than a year due to the pandemic.

Since KMTV sponsored today's event, participants heard from 3 News Now anchor Maya Saenz about what we do to give a voice to minority communities, including the series of reports Maya does called "Moving Forward".

“We promote Black and Hispanic excellence,” said Maya. “We promote anything that has to do with supporting the Latino community, empowering Latino businesses. I have now done 89 of those stories, 26 of those are Latino-focused.”
