They’ve become CEO’s, doctors, engineers, attorneys, and politicians — often leaving the city to join the middle class in the suburbs. But a large portion of Rochester’s Latino community still struggles in poverty, often filling low-paying jobs in construction, agriculture, and food service. Rochester’s second-largest-and-growing minority group has made enormous strides, but some Latinos say the community needs a new crop of leaders who will fight for much-needed improvements, especially in the area of education. But the community is clearly an important factor in the city’s diversity and economic success. The challenge for many Latinos is to move further into mainstream America while retaining their vibrant cultural legacy. Pictured: Melisza Campos, Jackie Ortiz, and Jose Cruz.
