The Association of Latin American Students (ALAS) and Pride are joining together to welcome Juniperangelica Cordova to Illinois State’s campus for a talk and workshop on “Queering the Latinx Community.”

Cordova is a translatina organizer from Los Angeles, California. Rooted in community and family, her work is centered around justice for communities who live at the intersections of the American imperialism project and social resistance. She has worked with the Transgender Law Center and GSA Network and she is passionate about providing survival resources and eventual stability for poor, black/brown trans women and families.

Her keynote speech, “Paradoxes of Navigating Space: Our Role in Deconstructing Racist Framework,” will focus on decolonizing activism and re-rooting community organizing for the most marginalized. The talk will be from 3-5 p.m. Thursday, October 18, in the Founders Suite at the Bone Student Center. Space is limited. Register for this event by October 16.

Cordova will also be hosting a workshop on re-rooting community organizing on Thursday, October 18, from 11-11:50 a.m. in the Old Main Room.
