Listen up mi gente - U.S. Latinx are the youngest, largest racial and ethnic group across THIS nation, which we call, and claim as home. We have the numbers in population, and we have the numbers in economic influence with close to 2 trillion dollars in purchasing power. It’s our time to step into our power. This panel will feature local Latinx business owners who will discuss the importance of transitioning from being a consumer to a producer and infiltrating spaces where we aren’t represented. It’s our time to show up and show out.. como siempre.
