The Hispanic Liaison is an organization who also does a lot to celebrate and promote their diverse culture roots. They promote local artists, host cultural celebrations, workshops, exhibits, festivals, to celebrate their rich Hispanic culture, promote cultural pride, and community integration.
The Hispanic Liaison launched their new Youth Leadership and Civic Program for Latinx High School students here in Chatham County. Their goals are to help Latinx youth develop their leadership and critical thinking skills, increase their self-esteem, prevent dropout, increase access to higher education, and provide opportunities for community and civic engagement.
