Conocimiento is a practice that was articulated by Gloria E. Anzaldua’s as a framework to understand identity formation and critical consciousness of cultural resiliency used by Latina/o/x activists.  Through interactive sessions, participants will gain insight into the historical context of Latina/o/x identity, decolonization, and will generate critical consciousness through relationships with themselves and each other. This experience is open to all students regardless of identity and or in terms of political activism. This  experience is eligible for credit towards the Social Justice Leadership Badge. **There are breaks scheduled in this experience, participation in all sessions encouraged but not required.

get excited~
