Milwaukee's young Latino population is the most important piece of the city's future.

Milwaukee's rising Latino population

Milwaukee's Latino population is its fastest (and only) growing segment. There are many great initiatives happening in the community, but there are still many challenges that the group must face.

The education and prosperity gaps for the population are the largest in any U.S. metropolitan area, and students are having a difficult time both in Milwaukee schools and in their transition to collegiate learning.

There's also a lot of uncertainty around the new U.S. immigration policies. Yet, the community is incredibly resilient, upbeat, and strong. And, any way you slice it, Milwaukee's young Latino population is the most important piece of the city's future.

Griselda Aldrete and Austin Ramirez are two incredible local leaders who affect positive change in the Latino community. They face these challenges head on acting as a voice to combat these issues. We discuss all in our latest episode!
