dc.description.abstractThe eighth annual Cambio de Colores (Change of Colors) "Latinos in the Hearland" conference convened at the University of Missouri-St. Louis May 18-20 2009. This campus also hosted a Cambio de Colores conference five years ago titled "Gateway to a New Community." The conference recognized the need to be proactive in building our changing Missouri communities. Since then, the climate toward immigrants, especially toward Latino immigrants coming to the Midwest from other states and countries, has often turned sour, bitter and, in some cases, violent. We are still a long way from achieving that new community, but many people are working to understand this change and, especially, to make it beneficial to everyone. Research and outreach efforts, as well as useful and necessary best practices, have continued developing in spite of that climate. The Cambio de Colores conference has always had the objective to share knowledge and achievements in the heart of the United States. The Cambio de Colores 2009 conference was the first one conceived and developed from a regional and multistate effort. Participants from all the Midwest and beyond came to share their expertise in research, outreach, and providing services.en_US
