ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A Roseburg church group is trying to promote diversity by hosting a Hispanic heritage night on Friday.

Organizers said the idea is to expose more people in the area to the Hispanic culture.

They also wanted to make sure the Hispanic community knows they have a safe space in Douglas County.

Julia Martinez-Masner, an organizer, said she’s looking forward to educating others about her culture.

“As a Hispanic and Latino, our priorities are our family. We have this connection where no one is ever alone," Martinez-Masner said.

Organizers said they were expecting to see more than 200 people at the event.

There was to be traditional Mexican food, performances and exhibits for guests to walk through.

The event was held at the Church of Latter-Day Saints on W. Bertha Avenue.
