In “(de)Americanization of Latino Youth,” Dr. Maria Chavez discusses her story, being the child of parents who migrated from Mexico to the U.S. during the Bracero guest worker program. She became the first person in her family to graduate from college, earning her B.A. and M.A. from California State University, Chico, and her Ph.D. from Washington State University. Participants will learn about the challenges Latinos face when being the children of immigrants, and ways Latinos navigate different spaces to have a voice. Chavez is an associate professor of political science specializing in American government, public policy, and race and politics and the author of “Everyday Injustice: Latino Professionals and Racism.” For more information, contact the Intercultural Diversity Center at ua_idc@ua.edu.
