Engaging the Latino Community #PLA2018

(Re)Building Latina/o Outreach: Steps to Engaging Your Community After attending my first Pura Belprè Celebration last year at Annual, I promised myself to attend more sessions and events which revolved around my culture. On Thursday at PLA 2018, I attended a great session called (Re)Building Latina/o Outreach: Steps to Engaging Your Community. What was great about the presentation was that many of the suggestions didn’t only apply to the Latino community – they applied to all types of cultures we might be serving in our spaces.

#PLA2018 – getting there is half the adventure!

In case you’ve been living under a rock these past few days, there’s a huge storm bearing down on Philly and #PLA2018 as we speak, complete with an ice glaze and 9-13 inches of predicted accumulation.  Or at least, I keep hearing it’s a big storm…so far it seems more like a typical storm we’d get back home in Ohio.  But I suppose if it *keeps* snowing all day and into the wee hours of the morning, it will shape up to be pretty hefty.
