Great intentions, needs attention
We have found some representation on campus but not enough. We have found representation through artwork on campus, although sometimes the stories behind the artwork are unclear. We worry that some spaces are meant to check the box for diversity and inclusion, but we do not feel that we belong. In the first picture, we see that new spaces are created, but where do Latinx students belong in these spaces? Some of us have experienced being questioned for being in particular spaces or being turned away when asking questions. In the second picture we see a place that was made for all of us, yet it is a place where we do not always feel welcome. The Mulit-cultural center is for students of all cultures but does not seem welcoming from the outside. A place meant for many yet feels hidden and unwelcoming. These are just two examples of where we have questioned Latinx visibility, but there are many more.
