Children display PLACES-LUGARES sign at Hispanic Heritage Festival

The Hispanic Heritage Festival kicked off Saturday, September 10th in Harrisburg with a block party organized by the Latino Hispanic American Community Center (LHACC). Vendors from all around the area came out in support, offering child activities, giveaways, and information about their services for community members. Context and Development Lab (CDL) representatives were present to inform the community about the PLACES/LUGARES project (Witherspoon & Bamaca, Co-PIs). CDL offered coloring and crafting for families and had project-related water bottles, hand sanitizers, pens, and whistles as giveaways. The event was well-populated by members of the Harrisburg community and provided a great opportunity to interact with community members. LHACC is a community supporter of PACT.
