Our speaker will be our own member, Amanda Boomershine, professor of Spanish at UNCW. The topic will be the Latinx community in North Carolina, including demographic trends and terminology. We will discuss topics relevant to the Latinx community – immigration, education, healthcare, politics, and the economy. Amanda will also offer ways that we can engage with and get to know our Latinx neighbors.
North Carolina’s Hispanic population is nearing one million, with 997,000 residents, 12,657 living in New Hanover County, and 5,549 in Brunswick County.
