Rev. Carmen Hernandez is legendary for her activism in the Southeast Bronx Community. Her work, much more than a job, is a calling, a ministry, and her life’s passion to serve the Bronx. For years, she has met with small business owners and persuaded them to work together. She realized the future of the Bronx depended on building both a strong business outlook and a real sense of community as strong as closely-knit family. Carmen has been a true minority advocate since childhood. You can learn a thing or two from her struggles and triumphs in this article that was recently published in Latinas in Business.
