Latino Memphis has served Latino clients throughout the Mid-South for the past 20 years. Their mission is to assist Latinos in this region by connecting, collaborating and advocating for health, education and justice; we envision a future in which every Latino in the Memphis metropolitan area has the opportunity and the resources to become an engaged member of the larger community. Mauricio Calvo, their executive director, explains our work in relation to his own experience as an immigrant to the United States: “My team and I work every day to make the growing Latino community here feel as welcome as I was made to feel when I came here from Mexico City in 1993. For many Latinos living in Memphis, we are the only place they can turn for assistance with law enforcement, healthcare, education and other basic services.”
