Throughout 2013, listeners have heard from presidents of organizations who are global change agents. We will also hear from CEOs of social enterprise businesses who are changing communities and college educators who are taking their students out of the classroom and into surrounding neighborhoods to learn and serve others.
On December 7, 2013, Nashvillian of the Year, Renata Soto, will join us in the studio. Hear from a remarkable woman who dreamed of empowering, inspiring, and motivating the Latino community by showing Nashvillians how to truly embrace diversity. Listen as Renato shares about her dreams to put a variety of immigrant services under one roof at Casa Azafrán and what it took to make those dreams become a reality.
A Costa Rican native, Renata Soto will also share how Casa Azafran is empowering Latino families in Middle Tennessee by promoting social, civic and economic integration in the community. We will also hear her give advice on giving your time, talent, or treasure to a non-profit.
Living Your Best Life, a radio show that empowers, inspires, and motivates us to live our BEST life, is heard on 760AM The Gospel in the Middle-TN area, Tune In, Inspirational Networks, military bases and on Ustream.TV worldwide from 9:00-10:00am CST.
More About Conexión Américas
Conexión Américas was founded in 2002 to address the pressing challenges, and opportunities, created by demographic changes in Middle Tennessee as an increasing number of Latino families moved to our state.
Conexión Américas assists families and individuals in achieving goals such as buying homes, starting businesses, improving their conversational English, navigating systems in their new community, learning their rights and responsibilities, helping their children succeed in school, and bettering their lives through nationally recognized services and programs.
More About Casa Azafrán
In rooms that mirror the beauty of African and Spanish design, Casa Azafrán is currently home to nine non-profit partners who provide opportunities – ranging from health, financial, and legal services to cultural, culinary and educational enrichment – in Nashville’s most international and ethnically diverse district.
The idea to create a central place of gathering, learning and engaging took root several years ago as a vision of Conexión Américas, which has worked since 2002 to promote the social, economic and civic integration of Latino families in Middle Tennessee.
