About PRLACC
PUERTO RICAN / LATIN AMERICAN CULTURAL CENTER

The Puerto Rican/Latin American Cultural Center’s mission is to improve the status of Latinx students and to promote awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the richness and diversity of Latinx individuals and Latin American cultures. PRLACC works independently and collaboratively with other University departments and community organizations to sponsor educational and cultural programs, provide services and leadership opportunities, foster connections, and educate the greater University community about Latinx issues. Our services and programs seek to enhance and support student, faculty, and staff recruitment and retention, as well as enrich the multicultural climate of our community.

From September 15-October 15, we celebrate all OUR From September 15-October 15, we celebrate all OUR GENTE!!!! 🎉 

Latinx Heritage Month goes beyond the next month, it’s year-round! It’s a time to reflect on where we are today and appreciate our ancestors for the tremendous work they have done to create change in a world that needs more education regarding our culture and how the fight for equity will never  stop. 

Why Latinx and not Hispanic? It’s 2020 everyone! We need to advocate for inclusivity for every single person within our community. All identities are important! We must respect each other, use pronouns every time we introduce each other, and speak out against microaggressions. 

We want to express our gratitude to our ancestors but also, to the activists who are a part of our community that are continuously changing the narrative on how Latinx people are perceived in the world. As we continue to fight for more representation in the world, we remain united more than ever.

HAPPY LATINX HERITAGE MONTH!!!🎉
