KidGlov, a boutique marketing and advertising agency based out of Lincoln and Omaha, Neb., recently welcomed Ramon Calzada, executive director of Centro Latino of Iowa to a recent episode of their podcast, Agency for Change. The episode explores Hispanic Heritage Month and how Centro Latino of Iowa celebrates the growing Latino community in Council Bluffs.
“It was eye opening to sit down with Ramon on the podcast,” said Lyn Wineman, host of Agency for Change and president and chief strategist at KidGlov. “He shared such great insight into the incredible Latino community in Council Bluffs and the great work Centro Latino is doing to help support them.”
Centro Latino of Iowa began as a task force twenty years ago with representatives from the United Methodist Churches to establish programs for the growing Latino community of Council Bluffs. What began as an organization to assist with translators, grew to now provide a wide range of programs and services including language access, resource navigation, educational programs, workforce development, adult education workshops, civic engagement and more. The group also proudly hosts the annual Iowa Latino Festival, Sept. 25, in Bayliss Park, Council Bluffs.
“The Latino community has been here for a long time, first with the native peoples and then with the Spanish from Mexico,” said Calzada. “We like to celebrate our heritage as part of the United States culture – that we’ve been here for a long time, that we contribute to society immensely as a collective, and we’re proud to be Americans.”
In the Agency for Change podcast episode, Calzada explains how Centro Latino of Iowa works as a resource center for the growing southwest Iowa Latino community. The group also partners with other organizations with language assistance and cultural education.
