Latinx Heritage Month

Connecting Our Roots

Like a flower through concrete, the Latinx community continues to break barriers that might hide us from the sun. We want to take the time this month to recognize the roots of our complex and growing history. Here at UW–Madison, we declare that we are not only seeds within the institution, but thriving networks of pride, justice, and love. This month, our theme is “Connecting our Roots,” as we are rooted in the past, the present, and the future.

Due to the current situation surrounding Covid-19, the Latinx Cultural Center will be following UW–Madison Smart Restart, Public Health of Madison & Dane County, and Center for Disease and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for practicing social distancing and group gatherings. Programming for UW's Latinx Heritage Month will be utilizing various virtual and social media platforms starting September 15th through October 15th.
