What does it mean to be Hispanic/Latina/e/o/x in the United States?

Numbering over 60 million, Hispanic/Latina/e/o/x identified people comprise 18% of the U.S. population, and represent the largest racial-ethnic group in the United States. Yet the Hispanic/Latina/e/o/x population is not a monolith, with people within this racial-ethnic umbrella having origins in over 20 different Latin American and Caribbean countries, speaking multiple languages, and identifying with multiple racial groups, including Indigenous and Black. The purpose of this panel is to provide a space for self-identified Hispanic/Latina/e/o/x people to talk about their racial-ethnic identity and lived experiences as people of color in the United States. The moderators will provide a brief overview of current perspectives on pan-ethnic and racial labels used to describe Hispanic/Latina/e/o/x people. Then participants will share artifacts that represent their racial-ethnic identity and encourage participants to do so as well.

Chancellor Gallagher and Clyde Pickett, Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Inclusion, will provide remarks.

If you require an accommodation to participate in this event, please contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at diversity@pitt.edu by September 10.
