If you don't know about something, you ask the right people who do. 

Latinos are the fastest growing demographic in Milwaukee - Wisconsin - and the nation.  We are also the largest minority. That means that the fate and well-being of the Latino community is also the fate of the broader community.  That is a message we should all be sharing often with others because an investment in Latinos is a win-win proposition.  

 

Our Latino community needs to do our part too.  We need to be aware of the opportunities around us.  We have an obligation to ourselves and our families to continually improve our own positions.  And we need to learn about programs, services and assistance that is meant to help us through that process.  As we learn about opportunities for Latinos or Latino serving organizations, we will share them with you here.
