Latinas/os/x-Hispanics: A Basic Understanding of a Diverse Identity and Labels with GAPS EDI Javier Cervantes
October 6, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Javier Cervantes to speak on subjects that will build knowledge and understanding of the varying identities and labels ascribed to Latinas/os/x in the United States.
To recognize National Hispanic Heritage Month, GAPS Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) department is hosting a series of district-wide programming including three virtual keynote speakers. Latinas/os/x in Albany comprise roughly 13% of the city’s population, and the GAPS school community has over 21% students who identify as Latina/o/x. The demographic in GAPS is greater than what is reflected in our Albany community, and we as a district want to recognize the diversity GAPS represents through educational programming for our schools and community.
