Even as people of Hispanic and Latin American backgrounds continue to constitute an increasing portion of the United States’ population, underrepresentation of this particular community persists. From immigration status checks in Arizona to talks of a border wall and the repeal of DACA, legislation has often unfairly targeted people of Hispanic and Latin American descent. The resources found on this page seek to shed light on the social, racial and economic injustices this group has confronted and continues to confront.
This introduction provided by a staff member at Falvey. However, we would always prefer to have our introductions written by the members of the community represented in the provided resources. If you are a member of the Hispanic or Latin American community and are interested in contributing an introduction for this page please reach out to us HERE.
