Virtual Platica: Latinas and the Politics of Urban Space
1:00 PM CST (virtual)

Virtual discussion on Latinas and the Politics of Urban Space (2021), edited by Dr. Sharon A Navarro and Dr. Liliana Patricia Saldaña. The book includes Chicanas, Puerto Rican women, and other Latinas who organize and lead social movements, either on the ground or digitally. The book’s focus is on women challenging racism, sexism, homophobia, and anti-immigrant policies through their political praxis and spiritual activism. Drawing from a range of disciplines and perspectives, academics and activist authors offer unique insights into environmental justice, peace and conflict resolution, women’s rights, LGBTQ coalition-building, and more—all through a distinctive Latina lens.
