Did you know that Hispanic refers to descendants of people from countries where Spanish is the primary language? Latino refers to people from Latin America. They often overlap but not always. People from Brazil, where Portuguese is the primary language, are Latino but not Hispanic, and people from Spain are Hispanic but not Latino.
The Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center is located at 75 Langley Drive, Lawrenceville.
