September 25 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Juntas, or “together,” offers a brave space for Latinx womxn, femme, and non-binary-identified students to share unique cultural experiences with other members of the UWM community. Latinx community and campus leaders will facilitate a cooperative learning experience for attendees through small discussion/”healing” circles. This program aims to help build relationships, share communal narratives, and develop tools for support, success, and self-care. “When one grows, we all grow.”
This year’s theme is “Activism and Self-Care.” This year we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Roberto Hernández Center and the womxn behind its history. Juntas will provide attendees an opportunity to reflect on self-care as a radical and transformative practice while connecting to attendees and facilitators on a deeper level to illuminate the beauty, diversities, and complexities of identifying as a Latinx womxn.
The event will be held virtually on Collaborate Ultra. There will be three discussion sessions: Activism, Self-Care, and Community Healing and Support, each led by a different facilitator. Attendees are invited to attend any or all of the sessions!
This event is co-sponsored by the Roberto Hernández Center and the Women’s Resource Center
