The Puerto Rican & Latin@ Studies Project (PRLSP) faculty recently visited the newly elected Senate and Congressional Latino Legislators at the Legislative Office Building. Their election is a historic event since this is the first time that the State of Connecticut has had such Latino representation. The Project faculty celebrated their coming into office by giving them a “Cafe con Leche” Latino breakfast and discussing future opportunities to collaborate.
This marked the beginning of an ongoing collaboration with the School and the PRLSP. The Latino legislators have offered to come to the SSW to continue collaborative planning and will be attending the Project’s Exito celebration on May 22nd.
