Por Ellos Si Podemos - Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month
[The] goal is to create a banner of excellence that all children can raise together… Especially the ones whose dreams, goals and self esteem remain under attack… With that said, we are excited to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month by highlighting some of the trailblazers within the Latino community via Por Ellos Si Podemos.

The Brooklyn Book Festival is this weekend!



Be sure to come out on Sunday to check out some panels and stop by the Strand booth (#901). The Brooklyn Book Festival is free, and takes place outside (and the weather forecast looks great).

Paul Auster, Zadie Smith, Roxane Gay, Jenny Offil, Catherine Lacey, Waldo (yes, that Waldo), and just a few of the featured speakers and guests! Check out the line-up here.

And yes, R.L. Stine will be reading from a cemetery on Saturday, which is making my ten-year-old self squeal with joy. See you there?

This is Aaradhna singing this retro styled song of cutting off your boyfriend’s dick for cheating on you in a delightful song called "Lorena Bobbitt."You should all listen (and buy) her album Treble & Reverb on her bandcamp here - it will make you shimmy and sock hop instantaneously.

New Zealand based Aaradhna otherwise known as a Aaradhna Jayantilal Patel is half Indian, half Samoan and full on awesome. [Wiki]

Meeting Notes

Latin@ leadership matters only to the extent that it actually addresses the needs, supports efforts, and actively seeks to improve conditions within Latin@ communities and communites of color as a whole. A last name and brown-faced photo prop do not equal diversity.

There is an important difference between openness and naïveté. Not everyone has good intentions nor means me well; I remind myself I do not need to change these people, only recognize who they are.
