Latino Challenges Toward Racial Justice is a two-day workshop for people who live in or work with Latino communities, and who seek to end racial disparities in our institutions and end racism in our society.

Latino Challenges engages participants in a critical analysis of how racism disempowers Latinos, hindering both our personal well-being and our communities’ development. We examine how people of Latin American origin, like people of all other ethnicities, have been racialized and racially situated in the US. 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 also address how racism divides Latinos and African Americans, and undermines the cross-racial solidarity necessary to create racial equity within our institutions. At the same time, we explore how our cultures, identities and histories of struggle are vital sources of strength for Latinx individuals, families and communities, and key to a growing multi-cultural, multi-generational, cross-racial movement for social transformation.
