LatinX Ally

Dr. Ray Ramirez

Many colleges have opportunities for students and educators to participate in ally programs. These programs are essential to create an understanding of challenges facing specific populations and strategies that can be employed to foster a more welcoming and supportive environment. Campuses that seek to foster enhanced outcomes for LatinX students and educators must similarly ensure that their communities are engaged in professional learning that enhances their ability to support their LatinX community. While many organizations have released statements affirming their support of LatinX people and communities, these statements must translate to real change and action. Expanding on our cornerstone Black Ally program, we will explore frameworks and strategies toward addressing this phenomenon that are sustainable, transformative and rooted in justice at both the individual and institutional levels.
