We will provide an overview of the successful strategies used by the NLRC to engage the diverse Latino communities in our region. We will focus on long term and time-sensitive strategies, inter-generational connections, and growing partnerships within the university and among non-profits in North County San Diego. We will highlight the evidence of cultivating respect and community responsiveness through effective projects on health, education, civic engagement, incarceration, re-entry, food insecurity, migrant labor, and immigrant youth. We will share challenges and how we worked with our partners in the community to overcome them. Finally, we will present current outcomes of a two year study on civic engagement that tests the effectiveness of a Spanish-language curriculum based on popular education that has been offered (free) to members of urban and rural low-resourced communities.
