In this forum, please think and write about what you see as the strengths and contributions of Hispanics / Latinos in the U.S., whether in communities that have been here for hundreds of years (as in Colorado's San Luis valley), or have formed more recently. You may discuss art, literature, music, economics, sociology, politics, religion, etc. Please avoid stereotyping. You may refer to recent news articles and journal publications, as well as to other sources, but please be sure to cite them, and to include any direct borrowings in quotation marks. You may include links to web pages, videos, or other resources you believe will be of interest to your colleagues.
