For a progressive town, Asheville is still surprisingly anglo-centric. I’m excited Descubre is highlighting the Latino voice and showcasing the community’s contribution in our area.

A community is merely a reflection of the people in it. One that uplifts humanity in every decision attracts diversity. One that works harder at it as time goes on celebrates diversity. You can feel, taste, smell, see and hear the difference in these places. That is the type of community that I want to live in, work in and fight for.

There’s a need for it. Asheville is very diverse and the Hispanic community is one piece of that diversity pie.
Karen Donatelli, when asked why she joint Descubre Asheville
Having worked with the Hispanic and Latino communities my whole life, they have a special place in my heart. My family has businesses and many of their staff are from this community. Also, this community is growing every day in Buncombe and the surrounding counties
