From Voting to PPE, Latino Memphis Delivers for Families
The leading organization for issues impacting the Latinx community in Memphis, Latino Memphis raises the voices of Latinos in the region and advocates for a better, more inclusive Memphis. Its holistic model empowers people through direct social and legal services, strengthens strategic partnerships, and influences advocacy and engagement. Informed by the community, its multigenerational programs focus on breaking the cycle of poverty for families.
As partners together on a learning journey to advance racial equity and justice, Kresge’s Human Services program has supported Latino Memphis’ efforts to grow and strengthen its model of services to increase socioeconomic upward mobility and self-sufficiency for the Latinx community since 2019.
