Latinx Heritage Month

While meeting virtually and physically distancing on and off-campus, now more than ever, we need each other for support and care. This is why we ask “¿Donde Esta Mi Gente?” Where are my people? During the months of September and October, the Latinx community at Mount Holyoke College, including students, faculty, staff, and alumni will come together to explore and celebrate our commonalities and differences via virtual workshops, forums, healing circles, and panels.
