The program will feature three panels of local Latino/a citizens, each representing the diversity of the Latino community, who will talk about how they spend their leisure time (tiempo libre), Sunday (Domingo), and a day at work (un dia de trabajo). Moderators for the panels will be: Alvin López (“Papa Rap”), from Spanish Media radio and community liaison at Springdale High School; Margarita Solorzano, executive director of the Hispanic Women’s Organization of Arkansas; and Ben Aldama, dean of adult education at Northwest Arkansas Community College.

The program is a collaborative project of the University of Arkansas’ Office of Diversity, the ACLU of Arkansas/ Immigrants’ Rights Project, La Prensa Libre, and the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History.
