Latinx teen conference aims to break barriers

Friday, January 25, 2019 by Tai Moses

If you’re between the ages of 14 and 19, this free event is for you: the Breaking Barriers Latinx Youth Conference, a day of art, music and discussion created entirely by the members of the ESB-MACC Caminos Teen Leadership program. Activities such as an open mic stage, zine exhibit, screen printing, mural painting, mosaic art, and teen-facilitated discussions support and amplify the theme of the day: breaking barriers, especially the barriers faced by Latinx youth. With food trucks on hand, no one will go hungry. It takes place Feb. 9, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with a live musical performance by Tiarra Girls at 5 p.m., at Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, 600 River St. To learn more or RSVP, visit Eventbrite or Facebook.
