For many Latinx/a/o people in the U.S., current conditions for daily living have never been harder. Today’s reality is built on long-held resentments informed by misinformation, racism and an unwillingness to understand this community. Whether you are seeking ways to actively promote racial justice in support of friends, neighbors and colleagues, or whether you identify as Latinx/a/o and seek educational resources, support or wish to report a bias incident, each of us can play a part in stopping anti-Latinx/a/o bias and racism.
