Letter to the community:

This resource list was created by our LENYIS community during Latinx* Heritage Month 2018. In the spirit of building community and drawing on our collective knowledge, we invite you to add resources to this living document. Feel free to share this with your wider networks, including educators, families, and beyond. We wish to emphasize, as the official month winds down, that this work around building awareness, appreciation, and action around Latinx culture continue year round. We encourage you to use these resources throughout the year in your spaces.

*Note: Some of the resources below may use terms such as Hispanic or Latina/o. As an organization, LENYIS encourages schools to use the term Latinx, because it is more inclusive of the community itself and moves us away from the gender binary. Learn more here.
