Tennessee Latino Network
The Tennessee Latino Network is an Division of Minority Health and Disparity Elimination sponsored program to provide an open forum for community-based agencies, activists, and interested citizens to focus on concerns of Hispanics in the State of Tennessee. The group meets regularly to share information and discuss topical issues. Frequently the Network hosts speakers who address current matters. The discussion issues include education, health, employment, mental health, legal issues (immigration, civic, criminal), family and children, cultural arts, legislation and even technology. An external web site is established to provide information on meeting dates, upcoming events and other information of local, state or national interest.
TLN members regularly participate in collaborative efforts with established agencies and emerging groups with similar multicultural issues to produce partnerships to improve both public service and private sector programs.
