[MEMBER HOSTED] Racial Equity & Inclusion Latinx Challenges Training
Latinx Challenges engages participants in a critical analysis of how racism disempowers Latino, Latina, Latinx people hindering both our personal well-being and our communities’ development. The workshop offers insights into the cultural backdrop of race and racism in Latin America that shapes our identity today regardless of our place of birth. We examine how people of Latin American origin, like people of all other ethnicities, have been racialized and racially situated in the US. We deconstruct how the US Census uses “Hispanic ethnicity” and “Race” as a political instrument to engineer racial demographics. Also, we highlight how our culture, identity and histories of struggle are vital sources of strength for Latinx individuals, families and communities. Throughout, we emphasize how racism divides Latinos and African Americans, undermining cross-racial solidarity required to create racial equity and to strengthen our growing multi-racial, multi-cultural, multi-generational movement for social transformation.
