Fuerza Latinx Charla
As Latinx LGBTQ+ folks, we have witnessed and experienced so much in this last year: a global pandemic, a consequential presidential election, and an increase in racist violence toward our Asian American + Pacific Islander (AAPI) neighbors. Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Adam Toledo, Daunte Wright – we honor each of them along with countless other Black and Brown folks lost this year to police violence.

So, you might wonder – why the are we talking about federal nondiscrimination protections, and why now?
More than anything, the pandemic has demonstrated fair access to housing, healthcare, education, and employment all remain critical for everyone, including Latinx LGBTQ+ people and our communities.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 does not include protections that helps ensure LGBTQ+ Latinx folks are defended against discrimination in our homes, jobs, and schools. In these times with a new administration, it’s important to talk about what inclusive protections would be for our community and how we can get involved to advance our movement for equality forward.
Join the National LGBTQ Task Force, LULAC, San Diego Pride, NALEO, United We Dream, TransLatina Coalition, Latino Equality Alliance, Hispanic Federation, UnidosUS, and more on Thursday, May 6 at 7:00 pm EST / 4pm PT for a conversation that highlights the lived experiences of Latinx LGBTQ+ folks.
