Centro del Pueblo
Centro del Pueblo is an idea, and a dream, conceived of for many years by members of the local Latino community as a way to house Latino/Indigena art, culture and services focused around our region’s Latino/Indigena community.
Our region’s Latino community is the largest minority group, and the fastest growing, according to the California Rural Policy Council. Yet, it faces isolation, workplace exploitation, civil rights abuses, political and cultural invisibility. Centro del Pueblo in Eureka will create a community space where members of the Latino/Indigena community, many of them undocumented, may meet, learn and celebrate their culture, form alliances with local Tribal communities, and create a voice for themselves that they currently lack.
