Title: Engaging the Latino Community in Salem
Author: Lopez, Monique G.; Welch, Mackie; Sandoval, Gerardo
Abstract: The purpose of this report is to provide City of Salem personnel with recommendations of strategies to use when engaging with the growing Latino population in the city. The barriers, opportunities, and action items identified in this report focus efforts on reaching members of the underrepresented Latino population, rather than those who are already involved as community leaders. This population is traditionally the most difficult to reach because they do not participate in formal networks. Our research was targeted at answering the following questions: • What opportunities for public engagement can be developed by understanding the Latino community’s perceptions of the City of Salem and its government? • What opportunities for mutual engagement do members of the Latino community perceive as possible for increasing interaction between them and the city?
