Esper­anza Forum presents: Sylvia Puente

Esperanza Forum flyer

The Esper­anza Latino Com­mu­nity Ser­vices Net­work (ELCSN) held its inau­gural Esper­anza Forum last Fri­day, Oct. 4! Sylvia Puente of the Latino Pol­icy Forum in Chicago spoke about the dis­parate suc­cesses and obsta­cles for the Latino com­mu­nity. Her pre­sen­ta­tion “Fuerza Latina: A Para­dox of Suc­cess and Hard­ship” dis­pelled stereo­types and empha­sized the increas­ing power of the Latino pop­u­la­tion, and the impor­tance of grow­ing soial ser­vices and advo­cacy. Gra­cias a Sylvia for speak­ing at our first Esper­anza Forum! If you would like infor­ma­tion about the Esper­anza Net­work, please con­tact Hec­tor Vazquez at Hector.Vazquez@illinois.gov.
