Past Latinidad and Towards Accountability: Exploring the Limits, Violences, and Possibilities of Organizing as Latinx and Caribbean People

Event Description: What happens when organizing under a single identity falls apart, or more specifically, targets and silences other people within the same community one is attempting to support? This event explores the limits and possibilities of "latinidad" as a unifying identity to address the ways in which queer and trans, black, and indigenous latinxs are silenced and often forgotten in the narratives we share about the latinx experience. Together we will explore the possibilities of organizing against anti-Blackness, patriarchy, and Indigenous erasure as opposed to compartmentalizing experiences under the name of "latinidad." This event is a hybrid art talk and community dialogue.
