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/

Is upward mobility an illusion? Equal opportunity can feel like a sham when the wealth gap is so wide and the rich only get richer. George Packer, staff writer at The Atlantic, knows that systemic inequalities - especially in education - can prevent the average American from getting ahead. Join us to hear from Packer as he explores the case for better public institutions, better public schools and better living wages as the key to fixing the inequality gap. 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Financial literacy is essential to social mobility and the creation of generational wealth. But how many of us learned how to open a credit card, take out a loan or balance a budget in school? A lack of access to financial literacy disproportionately affects marginalized communities and only widens the wealth gap. 

Yanely Espinal (@missbehelpful) is on a mission to create widespread change around systemic financial barriers. Join us to learn more about how you can avoid financial pitfalls and explore tips for your own personal finances.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Growing up, Nic Stone realized that Black characters didn't exist in children's books. Fifteen books later, including #1 New York Times Bestseller Dear Martin, Nic has dedicated her life to creating representation through amplifying stories of racial and social justice. In this event, Nic will illustrate how sharing our stories dismantles oppression and how you can unlock your personal truth. 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

There are age requirements for driving but not for prison - in the American criminal justice system, youth are treated as adults. Marcus Bullock was one of those incarcerated youths, sentenced to 8 years in prison when he was only 15 years old. Two decades later, Bullock is the CEO of his own tech company and working to dismantle the "school-to-prison pipeline" that ensnares so many young Black men. Join us to hear how creativity can be harnessed for social good.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

On June 12, 2006, Brandon Wolf lost two of his best friends in the Pulse Nightclub shooting tragedy, narrowly escaping himself. That night spurred Brandon to become a fierce advocate for LGBTQ rights and gun reform in honor of his friends. In the years since, his advocacy work has also shown him the necessity of self-care and the power of community. Brandon is firm in his belief that you have always been worthy of joy, love, and safety, and will share how self-care can be both a lifeline and the utmost form of resistance.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

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.
