Racial Equity Institute: Latinx Challenges Workshop (virtual)
Event Category 

Nonprofit Rate - $75 Corporate; For-Profit Rate - $150

Latino Challenges is a two-day workshop for people who live in or work with Latino communities and are interested in ending racial disparities in our institutions and working together for social justice. Participants engage in a critical analysis of how racism dis-empowers Latinos, hindering both individual well-being and community development. We examine how Latinos have been racialized in the US, as well as the cultural backdrop of race and racism in Latin America that shapes our layered identity today. At the same time, we explore how our particular cultures, identities and histories of struggle are vital sources of strength for individuals and families of Latin American origin in the United States. Further, we directly address how racism is used as a wedge between Latinos and African Americans and undermines the anti-racism movement.
