Building Allyship: Existing and Acting at the Crossroads: Understanding Intersectionality to be Better Allies

March 17, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

  • This event has passed.

This session will focus on developing an understanding of intersectionality within and beyond the Latina/o/x community.  Latina/o/x identity is often discussed as a cohesive group with similar interests, considerations, etc– However, the Latina/o/x community is a vibrant and diverse group of people from different countries, ethnicities, languages, races, religions, classes, genders, sexual orientations, abilities, citizen status, among other traits. Developing an intersectional lens enables critical allyship and advances social justice by broadening a historically unidimensional framework.
