While many Latinx/a/o people within the U.S. today are thriving members of their local community, many others face daily living conditions informed by long-held resentments, misinformation, and racism.
Whether you seek ways to actively promote racial justice in support of friends, neighbors, or colleagues, or you identify as Latinx/a/o and seek educational resources, support, or wish to report a bias incident, we can play a part in stopping anti-Latinx/a/o bias and racism.
