The inaugural class of inductees into the Iowa Latino Hall of Fame is being introduced. The first three members are long-time activists within the state.
The Iowa Latino Hall of Fame was established earlier this year to honor Latinos who have made significant cultural, social, political and economic contributions to the state.
Sonia Reyes-Snyder is executive officer of the Office of Latino Affairs.
“It is very important for us to acknowledge the contributions Latinos have made to the state and to the Latino community,” she says.
