Indiana Latinx Leadership Conference 2023
Does "X" Mark the Spot? Exploring Identity, Community and Lantinidad in Indiana
What’s in a name? How does what we call ourselves reflect how we see ourselves as individuals and as part of a collective? What terms resonate for you? Latina/o/e/x/@? Collectively, are we the Hispanic community, Latinidad or something else? What do these terms mean, where did they come from, what are the tensions and tradeoffs associated with them, and who gets to decide? This year’s Indiana Latinx Leadership Conference for high school and college students opens the door for participants to discuss, unpack, and explore the complexity of language, history and identity of folks with Latin American and/or Caribbean heritage living in Indiana.
