“Protect Your Magic” talk set for Sept. 30

“Protect Your Magic: Building Resiliency and Care Practices in Academia” is a talk hosted by La Loba Loca, queer Andina educator, herbalist and activist. It will take place Monday, Sept. 30, at 5 p.m. in UWM’s Alumni Fireside Lounge. Food and drink will be provided.

Loba’s work focuses on Andina identity, reproductive justice, doula work and plant connections. Loba’s core philosophy is based on (re)claiming and (re)membering abuelita knowledge as well as how to use our roots as tool for liberation and transformation.

Loba has facilitated over 100 talks and trainings across the Americas and the Caribbean. Loba’s project is the only one in the U.S. that offers education that intersects queer radical politics, healing justice, indigenous knowledge and reproductive justice.

Co-sponsored by Latin American, Caribbean, and U.S. Latin@ Studies (LACUSL), Sociocultural Programming, Student Involvement, LGBT Resource Center, Cultures and Communities Program, Roberto Hernández Center, Department of Spanish and Portuguese, Women’s and Gender Studies, Young People’s Resistance Committee, and the Women’s Resource Center.
