CMM Since 1930, Salt Lake City. Utah
CCM is the oldest nonprofit Hispanic organization in Utah. It is an organization that serves the Hispanic community in the Salt Lake Valley by providing educational, cultural, social, and athletic activities.
CCM was formed in the 1930s by immigrants from Mexico who migrated to the Salt Lake area for work and to grow their families. They wanted a place where they could get together to dance, have fun, and have celebrations. During this civic era, they faced discrimination practiced by local building owners who refused to rent to Mexicans looking for a place to celebrate their annual traditions and cultural festivities.
The center was founded for its commitment to perpetuate its culture and to improve the lives of families.
