Sunset Summer CookoutA RI moment of "Inclusive Harmony & Diversity." By Toms Alberto vila June 1, 2011 Back in 1996 when I made the decision to involve myself in the empowerment of the growing Latino community, I was invited to many social events all across the state by different individuals and organizations attending most of them along with my beloved wife Eva Carolina.
