Session #1: 11a.m to 12:30 p.m.

Here’s more: Twenty-five Latina agents of change share their inspirational stories in Somos Latinas: Voices of Wisconsin Latina Activists, co-edited by Andrea-Teresa Arenas, PhD, and Eloisa Gómez, who will speak at the event.

Somos Latinas shares the powerful narratives of 25 activists — from outspoken demonstrators to collaborative community-builders to determined individuals working for change behind the scenes — providing proof of the long-standing legacy of Latina activism throughout Wisconsin. Somos Latinas draws on activist interviews conducted as part of the Somos Latinas Digital History Project, housed at the Wisconsin Historical Society.

Books will be available for sale at The Phoenix Bookstore on campus and at the 6 p.m. session, which includes a book signing by the authors.
