Jillian Romero Chaves

Jillian Romero Chaves, a third generation car dealer born and raised in the Inland Empire, recently paused her roles managing OREMOR Automotive Group and serving as President of the Ontario Auto Center to pursue social impact entrepreneurship. She successfully launched the intentional dating logbook Clara for Daters which has garnered recognition in the February edition of Los Angeles Magazine, as an innovative resource to empower meaningful connections in the digital age.

Clara for Daters is not a dating app – it’s a positive technology tool designed to support daters in their post-match efforts to nurture meaningful connections while safeguarding mental wellness in today’s digital era of romantic distraction. Jillian is dedicated to prioritizing authenticity over swipe culture, aiming to fill the post-match gap of support for modern daters by helping them rediscover the value of in-person meaningful connections that transcend the digital realm.

The recent feature in Los Angeles Magazine highlights Clara for Daters’ commitment to addressing the prevalent loneliness and social isolation epidemic in today’s society. Jillian seeks to bridge the gap between dating apps, social media’s digital interactions and genuine human relationships by supporting individuals seeking meaningful social connections.

Looking ahead, Jillian is determined to collaborate with organizations like The Foundation for Social Connection, local community governments, small business restaurants and coffee shops along with traditional dating apps to address the loneliness and social isolation epidemic affecting our communities. She believes in empowering single individuals to engage in the basic exercise of post-match intentional dating with the support of Clara as an introspective and accessible digital resource. Through post-match data gathering, Jillian aims to make a difference by understanding the dynamics of social atrophy, identifying effective interventions, and tailoring initiatives to meet the specific needs of all affected individuals.

Jillian’s mission is clear: to empower social connection, one intentional date at a time.

Hilda Cruz

Hilda Cruz, Regional Program Director, Inland Empire – Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity supports the immigrant community in the Inland Empire through education, direct outreach, and advocacy for policies that transform and empower our most vulnerable communities. One of her passions is hosting intentional gatherings where she encourages immigrants to awaken their God-given personal power to transform their community through stories, prayer, poetry, and songs.

One of Hilda’s accomplishments in 2021-2022 was Project Thrive, a program that paved the way for immigrants and others facing work barriers. Through the California Department of Labor’s SEED Initiative, she promoted the entrepreneurship of immigrants, English language learners, and those who face employment barriers. In 2022, twenty individuals from this program received microgrants to start their businesses. Read more about Project Thrive and its wonderful participants.

For over twenty years, Hilda has been a community leader, organizer, and advocate focusing on faith, social justice, and the fair treatment of every person. She was drawn to the Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity work because she aspired to work with an organization that represented her values of being an intentional, multi-faith community guided by diverse faith traditions that live peaceably, respectfully, and lovingly with every person.

For the past 11 years, she has led public, multi-faith prayer services that center on peoples’ stories and invite attendees to deep reflection and action—gaining recognition as a  “Change Maker” and ” Transforming Leader.”

She is currently a Mercy International Global Action Emerging Leadership Fellow, with hopes to raise her voice on a global scale on issues of degradation of the earth and the movement of people.
