Latinx Heritage Month Resources

September 15, 2022 — October 15, 2022

In honor of Latinx Heritage Month (September 15th – October 15th) please share these resources from our partners & collaborators.

Why we say Latinx:

At Teach For America we aspire to be an all-inclusive organization. This is why our community has decided to use the term Latinx. The "x" makes the word “Latino” gender-neutral and inclusive of genders outside of the male-female binary. Latinx includes people of Latin American descent of diverse cultural, national, racial, indigenous and linguistic backgrounds. Additionally it’s inclusive of individuals whose gender identities fluctuate along different points of the spectrum from agender or nonbinary to gender nonconforming, genderqueer, genderfluid, and intersex. To learn more about the origins of “Latinx,” listen to this interview from Latino USA https://www.latinousa.org/2016/01/29/latinx-ungendering-spanish-language/

Join us as disability and inclusion activist Imani Barbarin discusses what we can do to dismantle our deeply embedded ableist tendencies to create more inclusive communities.

Equity Talks Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Impact work can sometimes be hard to quantify. How do you tell your story and stand out from the crowd in a way that speaks to your passion for change? Join us for an interactive workshop on how to compellingly craft and deliver your story of impact.

Clearing away clutter can help you make healthier choices, improve your relationships, and cultivate a more balanced life. Join Kenika Williams, professional home organizer and TFA alum, as she talks through the power of spending 30 minutes a day for a week to declutter practically any space that you inhabit. She'll give you a blueprint on the best way to navigate decluttering your space, resources that will personalize this work for you, and and set the foundation for focus, balance, and impact.

Unwritten rules about gender conformity are pervasive in our society, and especially in our schools which should function as inclusive, safe, and brave spaces for students. Policies and guidelines that support gender expansive individuals are few and far between, and the lack of such protections can dramatically impact our environment and experiences. Join us for a discussion on gender identity, equity, and how we can work toward inclusivity together. 

Equity Talks Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Mindful self-compassion combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our emotional well-being. While mindfulness increases our awareness of the present, self-compassion encourages greater kindness and understanding of periods of suffering. Individuals who are more self-compassionate tend to have greater happiness, life satisfaction and motivation, and overall better physical and mental health. Join Marisha Dixon, Wellness Leader and TFA alum, as she talks through how to become more self-compassionate, use self-compassion practices, and harness empathy for growth and impact.

Thrive Personal Growth Series Personal Growth

Access to opportunity should be a universal truth, but for so many, inequity and legislative instability leaves lives hanging in the balance. Join us for a conversation on immigration justice, where we’ll celebrate the diverse and intersectional immigrant community, explore the impact of immigration policies on our kids and communities, and actions you can take to advocate for immigration justice.

Equity Talks Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Increasingly, social justice movements have been pushed into the online sphere and social media has been leveraged as a force for good. What does this new movement of online advocacy and changemaking look like? How do you build an authentic brand as an advocate for equity and move beyond performative social media? Join us for an interactive workshop on building your brand for justice and equity to explore social media as a tool for equity mobilization.

"I don't deserve to be here." "I'll be found out!" Imposter Phenomenon is a common occurrence that can keep us from feeling a sense of belonging and accomplishment, especially in spaces where societally reinforced expectations of who belongs or who succeeds are pervasive. What does recognizing your own strengths look like in a world that’s set up to not always clearly recognize them? How do you identify when your imposter voice takes over? In this interactive workshop, we'll dive into how to navigate imposter phenomenon and learn to identify triggers, as well as understand the roots of imposter phenomenon in inequity.
