Two notes before diving in! First, we will be using "Latinx" throughout this Issue Page and our work more broadly as compared to Latino/a, Latin@, Latine, Hispanic, etc. While only 3% of adults who self-identify as Hispanic or Latino use ‘Latinx,’ we and others* believe this term is the most inclusive representation of all genders and Black and Indigenous folks (Pew Research Center*). We’ve linked some articles below to dive deeper!
Second note - While immigration and documentation status is an issue within the Latinx community, notably the Latinx community is the largest population of immigrants in the US and conversations about immigration typically center the US Southern border, we don’t want to conflate Latinx Rights with Immigrant Rights and encourage you to look at our Immigrant Rights Issue Page for more info. Happy diving!
