Latinos in Utah

Feb 23, 2015

Monday, we’re talking about history and change in Utah’s Latino community. There is a long presence of Mexican-Americans in the region: this was Mexico when the pioneers came into the valley after all. But the economic boom of the 1990s brought many immigrants into the state, and with it a diversity of people from Central and South America. As part of the Hinckley Institute of Politics’ Siciliano Forum on US-Latin American Relations, we’re asking what those changes mean for the Latino community and for Utah.
