Latinos in Georgia: Politics and Public Policy Archive

In October 2019, the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies and the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO) and GALEO Latino Community Development Fund (LCDF) announced a statewide initiative to document the contributions the Latino and Hispanic communities have made to the landscape of modern Georgia politics. To ensure the most comprehensive documentation and accessibility of the political history of all of Georgia’s citizens, the Russell Library and GALEO are working together to identify and document people and organizations representing the interests of the Latino and Hispanic communities. This effort preserves traditional records and papers and captures oral histories with elected officials, activists, and business leaders.

This collection is in progress.
