Carolina Center for Public Service awards the LMP a grant to support disaster recovery

The Carolina Center for Public Service awarded the LMP with a Disaster Recovery Project Grant from the UNC Disaster Relief Fund at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the amount of $4,600 to support disaster recovery efforts in Ocracoke, NC. The funds will be used to finish repairs to the Deepwater Theatre, a community space of the non-profit organization Ocracoke Alive, sponsor of the island's annual Festival Latino. The theatre was damaged during Hurricane Dorian in 2019. Ocracoke Alive is an LMP community partner participating in the new LTAM 360 “Heritage and Migration in NC” class this spring, and will host UNC students learning about the island’s Mexican history.
