¿Y Cómo Está Mi Gente?
Mi Gente Mi Pueblo enters every space with the question: ¿Y Comó Está Mi Gente?
This is an essential question to creating the future we want to see: All Latinx communities are visible, connected, and thriving.
With this vision in mind, Mi Gente Mi Pueblo is pleased to announce our THIRD Annual
Mi Gente Movida! Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, September 15th to October 15th, Mi Gente Mi Pueblo will amplify and host a wide range of opportunities around our narrative, healing, and advocacy. Together in communidad, our collective power paves the way to visibility, feelings of belonging, and accessible resources.
Our keystone event, Mi Gente Movida, is a weekend full of connection and empowerment. Join us for a Latinx art exhibit, music, dancing, food, and equity-focused conversations starting Friday, October 7 to Sunday, October 9.
This year's theme:
Aquí está Mi Gente: Diáspora Latina
The complexity of the Latinx culture is often reduced to a single monolith of stereotypes and assumptions. The absence of authentic stories across the Latinx diaspora has only caused tension and division among Mi Gente.
The real magic of Mi Gente is a combination of our shared experiences, cultural connection, and our unique differences that creates the beautiful tapestry of Latinx communities.
In unison, we raise our voices and reach for a community often left out of the American narrative. The keystone event, Mi Gente Movida allows all of us to not only listen to the current story unfolding of our Latinx friends, families, and neighbors, but to have the tools to write ourselves into the story the way we deserve.
Thank you to the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg for supporting Mi Gente.
