Experience of Latina immigrants and refugees: Living in the shadows of an underground America

Latinas share our experience around immigration. This one day seminar provides a counter story to Trump's narrative. Apart from sharing our narratives, we can debunk myths about the immigrant community while also sharing facts and data.

Microagressions and Detours 101

This one day presentation gives an introduction to microaggressions, microinsult, microassault, and detours folks take rather than engaging in a discussion about race. The day is facilitated so that participants engage in "hands on" experience identifying microaggressions and how they may detour from the conversation.

Introduction to Critical Race Theory

Introduction to Critical Race Theory

An introduction to the tenents of critical race theory with some practical application to how they play out day to day. Day starts with a historical perspective of how the tenents have been embedded into policy very deliberately. Participants then move into creating concrete definitions of each tenent bases on their personal context. Finally, participants will unpack how each tenent is currently impacting their lives and how they engage with the world.

Training discusses Tara Yosso's concept of "community cultural wealth", specifically focusing on how most organizations give preference to the social, linguistic and navigational capital of White dominant individuals. Facilitator will introduce the other aspects of community cultural wealth: cultural, familial, aspirational, and resistant capital. Case studies will be provided of how I have engaged traditionally marginalized communities of color. Participants will be coached to develop a plan for engaging their communities in ways that are adaptive rather than technical.
