Dr. Gómez delivered a welcome for the “Justice for Latinx Immigrants!” symposium, a discussion on research, services and activism for the Latinx immigrant community, which took place March 10 at San Francisco State.

Latinx is an inclusive term that goes beyond the traditional gender binary to include the entire spectrum of gender and sexual identities. Read more about the term Latinx in this Inside Higher Ed article.

The symposium was sponsored by the Health Equity Institute (HEI), SF State Departments of Sociology & Sexuality Studies, Kahn-Hut Public Sociology Lecture Fund, Center for Research & Education on Gender and Sexuality, and the César Chávez Institute. Visit the “Justice for Latinx Immigrants!” Facebook page for more information about this event.
