cENTURIES AGO When our ancestors traveled to this land, they packed their documents, clothes, dishes, cooking utensils, tools and other family items into a baúl. Our logo is a baúl and it represents the history and treasures of our culture brought by our ancestors.
 

The word SOMOS means "we are".  ​This is who we are.

Our MISSION is to commemorate and celebrate the traditions, history, and heritage of the Latino community. We achieve our mission by:

  • Creating special events and projects that preserve and promote culture.

  • Coordinating El Día de los Niños, an international celebration honoring children on April 30.

  • Conducting ethnographic research and reports on the Latino experience. 

  • Presenting information on the state of Latino families and children.

  • Developing Cultura Kits to help families share their heritage with  their children.
