Every semester, the Latin American Leadership Society (LLS) at Berkeley has the great honor of hosting distinguished guests interested in Latin America and the Latinx community. This year’s event is titled “¡Represéntame! A Conversation Surrounding Latinx Representation in Media.” Speakers include our own Ethnic Studies professor and director Ray Telles; activist and co-director of the NYSYLC Angy Rivera; and filmmaker Frances Negron-Muntaner, who will be speaking about their experiences in advocating the importance of sharing Latinx stories and voices and the struggles they have faced in their endeavors. This is a vital conversation not just for members of the Latinx community, but for anyone interested in the media and its impact on underrepresented communities. The event will take place on Friday, April 23rd, at 3 pm PST via Zoom. See the flyer for more details on his terrific event.
