Tri-Cities Latino Community Network

 

The Tri-Cities Latino Community Network (TCLCN) is a partnership of Mid-Columbia Libraries, Tri-Cities Hispanic Chamber, and Kennewick School District Migrant and Bilingual Program, which was founded in 2015. Our mission is to leverage the expertise of our members and local leaders to activate positive influence in our community.

We host quarterly luncheons featuring a keynote speaker and recognizing a local Latino/a/x leader. We also host the popular annual Sembrando Esperanza / Planting Hope family event together with Kennewick School District Migrant and Bilingual Program and have produced the award-winning video series, “Inspiring Latinos / Latinos Inspiradores.”

The network is free and open to all; many of our members represent community service organizations, especially those serving the Latino community. Join our mailing list to receive notice of upcoming events and to share and receive community announcements.

If you are interested in joining the network, sponsoring an event, or nominating a speaker or Latino/a/x leader, email us at tricities.lcn@gmail.com.
