Metadata[+] Show full item record
This proceedings is a compilation of the three Cambio de Colores conferences held between 2006 and 2008. In 2006, the theme "Latinos in Missouri: Beyond Borders" explored the extent to which the flow of people, goods and information is changing our notions of what constitutes a border. The conference in 2007, "Latinos in Missouri: Everyone Together - Todos Juntos," underlined the need for all stakeholders - regardless of who they are or where they come from - to engage themselves in the process of integrating everyone into their communities. The 2008 conference, "Latinos in Missouri: Uniting Cultures - Uniendo Culturas," focused on how the Latino population is becoming part of U.S. culture. The abstracts included in this book are a reflection of the discussions that were held during these three events. They provide a diverse array of resources for community groups, access to information for researchers and connections to those who share similar interests in understanding and affecting the changes happening in our communities.
