This month’s issue of El Sol Latino highlights El Festival de la Familia Hispana (the Hispanic Family Festival), which will take place from July 15 to July 18 in Springdale Park, and promotes the Western Massachusetts Puerto Rican Day Parade on July 18 in Holyoke. Every year the festival recognizes Puerto Rican and other Latino individuals who contribute to the well being of the community, while the parade celebrates the Puerto Rican culture and heritage in the State.
The periodical features a recent study by the Carsey Institute, which indicates that almost half of US newborns were people of color, as compared to aproximately 40% in the year 2000. This ESL edition also showcases notable achievements by Latino individuals like Wilma Ortiz (Massachusetts Teacher of the Year) and several helpful sections like Robert O’Leary legal column.
