The Source of Suffering

Karen Menéndez Coller is the Executive Director for Centro Hispano, and she’ll share with us the current context of restrictions that drive immigrants into the shadows, and inflates the need for humanitarian aid in Madison.  This is the first of two services focused on our immigrant siblings in Madison.

  • The share the plate recipient for Sunday July 16 and Sunday July 23 is Centro Hispano. Centro Hispano is the leading non-profit in Dane County serving the Latinex Community. Its programs empower youth, strengthen families and engage the community with the goal of creating a Dane County where Latino families can aspire upward, to reach their personal goals and dreams because they feel engaged and strengthened with the tools for success.
