State commission wants to hear from members of local Hispanic/Latino community
GOSHEN, Ind. -- The Indiana Commission on Hispanic-Latino Affairs wants to hear from members of the Latino community during three listening sessions held across the state this year.
The first will be held April 5 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at College Mennonite Church on the Goshen College campus.
The commission wants to hear the concerns facing Indiana's Hispanic/Latino community in the areas of education, health, work force, public safety and civil rights.
“We need the people to come. We need their voices. We need them to talk about the issues of their communities, of our community here in the state," said Dolly Serrant, director of the Indiana Commission on Hispanic-Latino Affairs.
The second listening session will be in June 2019 in Evansville and the third will be held in October 2019 in Indianapolis.
The listening sessions will be in English and Spanish.
There will be free parking and light refreshments.
