Pictures from the Latino Community Dinner
Monday night the Assistant Dean and Advisor to Latino Students, Rodrigo Ramírez ’06, hosted the spring term Latino Community dinner. The topics of discussion were “What does it mean to be Latino?” and “Building a Better Community.” As our nearly 60 guests (both from within and outside of the community) at Occom Commons enjoyed fajitas from EBA’s, I lead a discussion regarding the “official” definition of Hispanic/Latino and the complexities of that term specifically, as well as racial/ethnic identification generally. Later, my fellow intern Horacio Romero ’14 lead the group through a workshop on improving inter- and intra-community relationships.
Thank you to those who attended and contributed to our lively discussion. And a special thanks to Jun Liang ’12 for letting us borrow his camera, and Anna Villarruel ’12 for taking the pictures.
