Mayor Steve Bach, who has pledged to make diversity a priority in his administration, will be the keynote speaker today at the first-ever Latino Community Luncheon.
The purpose of the luncheon is to network, promote cultural awareness and bring awareness of pertinent community and Latino issues, organizers Carmen Abeyta and Anna Marie Ortiz said.
The luncheon, which starts at 11:30 a.m., will be at the Crowne Plaza Hotel near Interstate 25 and South Circle.
Admission is $17.00 per person.
About 85 people have reserved a seat, and there are a few seats left, Abeyta said.
The luncheons will be a monthly event and are scheduled for the third Wednesday of each month at the Crowne Plaza.
