ICYMI: CONNECTING LATINO YOUTH/FAMILIES/COMMUNITIES W/EXT RESOURCES

 

Contrary with what many think, Latino/x population in the US is not a monolith, far from fitting the one-size-fits-all formula, the 60 million Americans of Latino/Hispanic origin represent over 20 Latin American countries, and a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds, education levels, geographic locations, histories, political affiliations.

Visit this virtual chat archive to learn what extension professionals across the country have been doing to be successful in reaching the Latino/x community.

Note to the reader: According to the Pew Research Center Latinx is a term used to describe people who are of or relate to Latin American origin or descent. It is a gender-neutral or nonbinary alternative to Latino for male  or Latina for female. About One-in-Four U.S. Hispanics Have Heard of Latinx, but Just 3% use it. To honor that preference I will use Latino throughout the questions  but we encourage you to find out from your audience their preferred term.
