Featured Integration Practice:

Mayor’s Hispanic Latino Initiative, Durham, North Carolina

Started on July 26, 2002, the Mayor’s Hispanic Latino Initiative seeks to reduce the high number of violent crimes against Hispanics by building a stronger partnership among the Hispanic community, the city government, and police. Strategies developed to reach this goal include increasing the level of police activity in targeted Latino neighborhoods; integrating Latinos into the community by developing neighborhood capacity and breaking down barriers to community services, governmental institutions and employment opportunities; and decreasing potential friction between Latinos and other population groups by promoting understanding of cultural differences.
