CULTURAL CONTRIBUTIONS

Latinos in Maine have been increasingly making cultural contributions to the state. With a larger Latino population in the southern part of the state, Latino community leaders have focused on creating an internal organizational structure to develop activities to highlight the rich Latino culture. Their efforts are paying dividends as a number of Latino-focused programs and events are regularly held. For example, there are many opportunities to participate in Latino dance and music in the Portland area, and the local community radio station in Portland, WMPG, has a weekly Latino program.
