The Indiana Latino Expo is held each year to foster a community where Latino individuals and families can achieve their highest potential, reflect pride in their culture, and are integrated into the community. To bring that vision into reality, the expo provides awareness of opportunities for economic advancement, enhanced quality of life, education and cultural awareness, and health and wellness for Latinos in Indiana.
