Sponsored by the Association of Latin@s and Allies in Public Service

October 23, 2020
5:00pm - 7:00pm

What does it mean to be an Afro-Latinx person? How do we embrace our queer and trans identities? What is the current movement calling for from our communities? How do we tap into our history and bring forth our power?

Afro-Latinx panelists share their thoughts and knowledge on the history of the term and how they have tapped into their power and embraced their blackness. In this event, we’ll talk about what it means to be an afro-latinx person, what the #BlackLivesMatter movement means for us, the intersecting identities and experiences of Latinx folks and how to navigate conversations of anti-blackness in our families.
