Celebrating the Latino spirit

Wherever you look, you will find Latinos, working in almost every occupation or profession in Utah. Whether as doctors, lawyers, housekeepers, business owners, and as elected officials, Latinos play an important role in the richness and success of our society.

This site is dedicated to celebrating the Latino spirit by showcasing a small number of Utahns who have contributed to the state of Utah. In an effort to bring about greater awareness of the role played by Latinos in our culture, a small cross-section of the many outstanding Latinos in Utah was chosen to be featured in this photographic essay.

We hope this website will stimulate interest in the Latino community and create a dialogue to discuss the role and contributions Latinos have made in Utah. This website looks at the many stories of achievement, overcoming obstacles, and pursuit of dreams that Latinos have experienced.

To further explore the challenges, contributions, goals, and future of Utah’s Latino community, we plan to refresh this program on an annual basis in celebration of national Hispanic Heritage Month.
