Mi Gente, Mi Pueblo’s purpose is to deepen, amplify, co-create, and share the emergent Latinx narrative in our area through dialogue, network building and engagement of the creative arts to serve the goals of our community in three ways - listen, engage, and build. We want to be the change we want to see in our community. By making Latinx visible, unified with a sense of belonging, thriving through our cultural narratives, healing with health practices, we accelerate equity through advocacy.
