Afro-Latin@s Now: Race Counts! #ConferencePresented by @AfroLationoForumFriday, October 24 | 9amFor location, schedule and other details, visit www.afrolatinoforum.org


The AfroLatin@ Forum is pleased to present Afro-Latin@s Now: Race Counts!, a three-day international conference to be held October 23-25, 2014, in New York City. This gathering will provide a unique opportunity to examine the structural and ideological barriers to full Afro-Latin@ representation and discuss opportunities for positive social change. 
 
Throughout the Americas, Afro-Latin@s are subject to severe systemic invisibility at all levels of society, in public and private institutions and agencies as well as in the general discourse on race and ethnicity. In Latin America, African descendants are well over a third of the total population and 50% of those living in poverty. In the U.S., where “Black” and “Latin@” are commonly represented as being mutually exclusive, less than 3% of all Latin@s identify as racially Black. This glaring disconnect between lived experience and formal documentation has resulted in vastly unequal access to healthcare, education, housing, employment, and political representation for millions of Latinos and Latinas of African descent. 

Afro-Latin@s Now: Race Counts! will provide a unique opportunity for us to examine and discuss the structural and ideological barriers to full Afro-Latin@ identity, visibility and representation. By consolidating networks, advancing common educational and advocacy agendas and charting out strategies for future collaborative work we will identify opportunities for positive social change and racial justice.
