A new online platform dedicated to serve Winston-Salem’s Hispanic community is up and running. Proyecto Mariposa is a one-stop portal that provides city alerts, community events, and educational opportunities in Spanish. Marina Alemán, Proyecto Mariposa’s Lead, says the project is designed to empower and uplift the Hispanic community in the Twin City.

“Proyecto Mariposa is a beacon of hope and progress for our vibrant Hispanic community,” Alemán said. “We understand the challenges many people face, and this platform serves as a bridge, connecting them to essential resources and opportunities that can pave the way for a brighter future.”

The user-friendly platform caters to diverse needs within the community, including educational resources, talent matchmakers to foster economic growth, and a hub cultivate a connection.

Winston-Salem has demonstrated efforts to advocate for the Hispanic community by hosting the Governor’s Advisory Council on Hispanic and Latino Affairs Committee quarterly in-person meeting earlier this month. It was the first time the meeting had been held outside of Raleigh.
