Latinx Resources

In June of 2016, the Latinx/a/o KC began a process to solicit thoughts , feelings, and experiences related to gender identity and expression inclusion within our KC. A survey was administered to the LKC, the Gender & Sexuality KC, and the Multiracial KC. Three themes (1. Name Change, 2. Practices, and 3. Education ) emerged from the survey and subgroup were created to explore themes. Subgroups reviewed the data, identified presenting problems, implications, and suggestion for future research and practice.

The Education Subgroup sought to create and engage in more education on gender identity and expression and the intersection with culture, race, and ethnicity- particularly within the Latinx community. Step one includes creating a list of resources for our membership to access. Below you will find this list.
