For many years now, the Latino community in Pittsburgh and Southwestern Pennsylvania has been growing, and along with it numerous organizations, both formal and informal, have sprouted. Recently, Latino leaders and others interested in the community’s growth have come together to form the Latino Round Table (“LRT”). The LRT is an informal grouping of socio-economic, healthcare, religious, economic, educational and governmental organizations focused on enhancing the visibility of Latinos in Southwestern Pennsylvania. The group acts as a unified forum and conduit for its members and business/political stakeholders to understand and promote a cohesive Latino agenda in our region.

The Latino population in Southwestern Pennsylvania is the largest growing populous in our region. Its impact upon the health, economy, workforce and lifestyle is quickly increasing. Thus, the LRT is committed to coordinating various grassroots efforts to unite our community and enrich our local cultural and political sectors by creating an understanding of Latinos.
