Latinx Heritage Month Luncheon (By Invitation Only)

Theme: “Latinx in the United States: Past and Present”

Featured Keynote Speaker: Pedro A. Regalado, Ph.D. Candidate in American Studies, Yale University; CCP Alumnus ’11

How has our evolving Latinx community resisted oppressive forces in the past? And how has it established bonds of kinship in the process while providing future generations a roadmap for survival and happiness? Regalado’s address will tackle the pressing issues that the nation’s Latinx community face today by providing some retrospect on how we have arrived at this moment of crisis and urgency, and how we might move forward.
