Latinx/a/o Heritage Month 2020 Events

At the University of Iowa, Latinx Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15th to November 2nd (Dia de los Muertos).

Latinx Youth Summit cancelled for 2020

The LYS co-Chairs, Sarah Lambert and Katie Newcomb, have spent the past several months discussing different formats and ways we could still make the Summit happen, and ultimately there is no way to do so that is equitable and doesn’t put even more work on educators' and students' plates. We truly care about you and the youth you work with, and we have no desire to make things even more difficult for you. While we’re sad we won’t be able to provide this opportunity this year, we believe that the best way we can support you all in this moment is to create space for your rest and restoration. Your health and well-being matters.
