Debunking the Latino Threat Narrative
Sunday, August 18 at 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm
Dr. Maria Chávez, Associate Professor of Political Science at Pacific Lutheran University, will speak about the tragic story of discrimination against Latinos in the U.S., of which El Paso is one horrific instance. In particular, she will consider the presence of “the Latino threat narrative” voiced by some political leaders and their followers. She will also consider the ways in which Christian communities can respond to this long-standing form of discrimination.
