Latino Challenges (in Spanish) - Durham, NC


  • Durham Technical Community College 1637 East Lawson Street Durham, NC, 27703 United States (map)

This two-day workshop is for people who work with and in Latino communities. It is designed to engage participants in a critical analysis of racism and the negative impact it has on the local community and Latino communities and create racial equity throughout our society.

In this workshop, we examine race and racism, and explore the relationship between institutional racism, cultural racism, classism and other forms of oppression. We look through history at how people of Latin American origin have been racialized and how they "have come" to the United States. We examine how our educational, health care and other systems disproportionately impact Latinos and Latinas today. Additionally, we take a close look at the current process in the US to, once again, redefine racial categories and the devastating effects this process will have on Latinos and on this country's long-term efforts toward racial equity if not interrupted now.
