Miembros de la comunidad ayudan a la gente hispana

 

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Hubo un taller coordinado por una organización con la ayuda del Centro Hispano.

Pero no mucha gente llegó y los activistas de Arkansas United Community Coalition estresa que solo por ser actives, la gente podrá lograr algo en la comunidad.

"Este es un foro informativo en donde le estamos dando información a los estudiantes que son elegibles para la acción diferida," dice Maria Muñoz. "También estamos dando información para la ciudadanía. Eso es lo que sucedio el sabado en el Allen Park Community Center."

Maria Muñoz vive en Region 8 y dice que siempre a encontrado una razón para ayudar a la gente hispana.

"Yo he estado involucrada desde el año pasado. Yo soy una de las originales que comenzó aquí con Mireya y Raquel Torres. Me motiva mucho ayudar a los hispanos, necesitamos estar todos informados y saber cuales son los recursos que nos provee programas como el de Mireya."

Si no pudo llegar a ese evento pero quiere ser mas active en su comunidad Muñoz dice, "Yo les recomiendo que se involucren en la comunidad.

"Estos programas son buenos para que nuestra voz que la escuchen y a muchos inmigrantes que sepan que hay diferentes recursos a los que ellos se pueden beneficiar."

Pero porqué es importante que usted sea activo en su comunidad?

Muñoz dice que la respuesta es simple, es para que todos escuchen que si hay una comunidad hispana en esta área.

"Si ve el gobernador que estamos involucrados y que si queremos estas oportunidades quizás pase un movimiento pronto."
