Latino Wisconsin: Migration, Settlement and Social Impact
There are over 30,700 Latinx people living in Dane County, and almost 70% live in Madison and Fitchburg. They work, go to school, run businesses, and spend time with their families; and they are an integral part of our community.
What do you really know about the Latinx community? What brought them to Wisconsin? Celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month, by learning about this group of people who are an integral part of our community.
