The Latino Community Network (LCN) is a resource for the benefit of all Ohioans by offering a hub of information for and about Hispanic/Latinos, with a specific focus on connecting the diverse Latino communities of Ohio.
The Latino Community Network (LCN) serves as the program office directly responsible to gather, disseminate information and conduct hearings, conferences, investigations, and special studies on problems and programs concerning Spanish-speaking people. The program is also responsible for securing appropriate recognition of the accomplishments and contributions of Spanish-speaking people to this state, and stimulating public awareness of issues and opportunities impacting Spanish-speaking people.
The LCN accomplishes its objectives by maintaining a database of Latino community organizations and resources, connecting with Latino and Latino serving organizations, providing constituent services, and conducting hearings and conferences. In addition, the LCN organizes the annual Distinguished Hispanic Ohioan Awards Gala to recognize the contributions of Latinos to the state of Ohio.
