1994's Latino Festival Parade in Washington, D.C.

Over the past several decades, a wave of Central American immigrants have made the D.C. region their home. In the time since, Latino communities in our area have evolved, as have the leaders who are active in them. We speak with community leaders in the region about that change and about how leadership in local Latino communities extends beyond conversations about immigration and politics.
