On February 23rd, Bryn Mawr College will be hosting the second annual Community Day of Learning. The title for this year’s theme is “In/ Visible: Class on Campus and in Our Lives.” Last year, over 800 students, faculty, and staff participated in some or all of the day’s program; the latter included 40 sessions offered primarily by combinations of students, faculty and staff and in formats ranging from workshops to films to panel discussions to lectures.
Little Known Help Zone will be hosting a session titled, Class, Culture, and Poverty: Bias Towards the Indigenous in Central America. The description for the session is as follows:
Before colonialism, aboriginals in Central America ruled the land. After Old World contact, a hierarchical class structure based in racism and ethnocentric superiority led to detrimental poverty in Central America, strongest in Indigenous Populations. Learn more, as well as how you can help.
This presentation will be a wonderful way to spread the word about the issues of Latin America and the causes Little Known Help Zone supports, as well as ways to get involved and help.
