Dear Campus Community,
September 15th marked the beginning of Latinx Heritage Month. This year, we have much to celebrate in the many ways Chicanx-Latinx students, faculty, and staff are making UC Berkeley and the campus experience richer.
This past year has been particularly difficult for many Latinx people in the United States. The undocumented community has been the target of a national campaign to dehumanize and minimize the contributions of Latinx people in America. Families have been separated, torn apart, and federal promises have been broken.
