Latin@ Realities and Gender-based Violence
September 22nd | 12:00pm CST | $15.00
Gender-based violence (GBV) affects all communities, including the Latin@ community. In fact, research indicates that about one in three Latinas will experience GBV in her lifetime. For nearly 40 years, Esperanza United has served and supported Latin@ survivors of GBV in culturally relevant ways. This session will review how utilizing a Latina-based advocacy framework and building on the communities’ strengths, cultural assets, and leadership, create conditions and solutions for thriving. Esperanza United President and CEO, Patti Tototzintle, will also share how we can all be a resource and support survivors more effectively.
The Power of Latino Leadership
October 6th | 12:00pm CST | $15.00
|We know that our Latinx community is not a monolithic one. We come from various countries, experiences, and immigration stories. So, what does it take to lead in an authentic way as a Latino in the United States? How does our culture support our growth and how might it hinder it? And, what can leaders of all cultures and ethnicities learn from how our community leads? Based on her personal experience as well as research about Latino leadership, Irma Marquez Trapero, will share with us about her own leadership journey and offer a few principles that guide Latino leaders to success!
Minnesotano: Being a Latino in Minnesota
October 13th | 12:00pm CST | $15.00
For Hispanic Heritage Month, join us for a lively panel conversation on what it means to be Minnesotano, or a Latino living in Minnesota. Several staff members from the Latino Economic Development Center (LEDC) will share their unique perspectives on the Latino/Latina experience in Minnesota as well as similarities and dissimilarities to their white neighbors. We want this to be conversational so questions and comments are encouraged!
