Is Language Important to being Latinx or Hispanic?

As the date of the Latinx Symposium on Thursday, March 14th approaches, we invite you to contribute your perspective to enhance the impact of the event within our Latinx/Hispanic community. Take a moment to share your personal narrative on the role language has played in shaping your identity as a Latinx or Hispanic individual. Join us as we delve into discussions about Latinidad and the emerging trend of the "No sabo Kid." Your unique story will add depth and richness to the symposium.
