Voices From the Valley

A podcast of the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region

The Changing Face of the Fox Valley – Part 2

One of the largest shifts in the Census data is in the Hispanic population. In fact Hispanics make up the largest minority group in northeast Wisconsin.  Hispanic and Latino residents of communities along the Interstate 41 corridor between Oshkosh and Green Bay increased by 46% between 2010 and 2020. 

 The growing number of Hispanic and Latino people in northeast Wisconsin outpaced Hispanic growth nationwide in the last 10 years, but lags the multigenerational growth that has built large Hispanic communities in other parts of the country, we’re going to link up all the Census numbers in our program notes today which you can find on our website.  

We hear from Lissette Cruz-Jimenez, a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion coordinator for Latinx middle school students for the Appleton Area School District. Lissette’s is one of five DEI positions in the district, all working to help students feel a little more included in the fabric of the community.
