Photo Journal - Fiesta Hispana 2017
I was glad to volunteer at this year's Fiesta Hispana in Siler City, NC. The annual event is organized by the Hispanic Liaison. This year saw over 600 people in attendance. Siler City is the first city in North Carolina to have a majority minority Latino population. The Liaison and town leaders will be pairing up with the help of UNC's Building Integrated Communities program to create city-wide action plans that improve economic development and strengthen newcomers' participation in local government.
