As I get acquainted with my new community, I’ve begun to discover that Madison has no shortage of people who are already helping the Latino community here. One example is Shiva Bidar-Sielaff, District 5 City Council member. While not Latina, Ms. Bidar-Sielaff already has a long history of supporting the Latino community in Madison.
I blogged earlier regarding Centro Hispano and just came across Nuestro Mundo, Inc., a Spanish-English dual-language immersion charter school that operates within the confines of Frank Allis Elementary School on Madison’s east side. Very cool.
