LATINO CENTER OF THE MIDLANDS
In our often binary-structured world, Latino issues are often synonymous with immigration.
But as with any of us who call America home, immigration is merely the preface—not the story.
The Omaha Metro is still highly segregated in many ways.
North Omaha, South Omaha, West Omaha, Council Bluffs—
every person mentally-filed by type into an appropriate neighborhood,
with a limited public transportation line to help connect (and integrate) the pieces.
Since 1971, the Latino Center of the Midlands has sought to be that bridge.
For 50 years they have not only empowered Latinos to use their identity as an advantage,
but to create a bridge to the larger community through education and awareness.
