About the OLLAS Charla Series
The name of the series, Charla, means "chat" in English. Established in 2003, the series was created to engage the UNO and greater Omaha community in informed and informal conversations about Latino and Latin American related issues. Each event in the series is free and open to the public.
Media are welcome to attend the series; however, due to the candidates’ schedules, none of them will be available for interviews.
