We are calling for workshops that re-imagine the borders placed around our Raza youth, families, and community. Although the Colorado Latino Forum reports that Latinas/os make up 20% of the population in Colorado, less than 7% Latinos are achieving higher education degrees, and as a community, we must address this disparity utilizing our own tools of self-determination, pride, and cultural inclusion. When dreaming without borders, we consciously call for workshops that engage rather than instruct, that include rather than exclude, and that encourage creative acts of resistance rather than normative strategies of assimilation. Crossing physical, emotional, spiritual, and/or theoretical borders is dangerous work, yet as mestizas/os, we brave these everyday marginalized spaces to generate new understandings of race, gender, sexuality, class, and ability. With this call for workshops, we are hoping to engage youth through career, education, and leadership preparation/instruction. All are welcome to apply. All are welcome to attend.
WE ARE ACTIVELY LOOKING FOR PRESENTERS IN THESE 4 AREAS.
