WHAT THEY ARE PRESENTING
Latin, X, E or O- Liberating or Limiting?
In-Person Session
Added to the dictionary in 2018, Latinx is a term used broadly to describe the Hispanic population. Created to be gender neutral, and therefore more inclusive to those who are non-gender conforming, the term isn’t without controversy, especially in the Hispanic community. Join us to discuss the nuance surrounding the term and consider ways in which we, as a community of color, engage in a multi-faceted, and complex, dialogue that intersects identity, culture, and emotions while maintaining community amongst ourselves.
