East North Side
This thriving Latino neighborhood continues to recreate traditional colorful homes and food gardens reminiscent of Latin American orchards. The Peace and Social Justice Center of South Central Kansas is located in that neighborhood along with the Seed House, a community organization dedicated to the empowerment and support of Latino Communities. This community is a reflection of various Latino neighborhoods in Kansas trying to build a community for themselves despite their hardships. Redecorating your home with Mexican styles and planting vegetables from your home country may not seem like much but means a lot to the community and the younger generations who live there. The cooperation and solidarity amongst members of this community is a great example of the day-to-day community bridging that should take place in other communities.
