Latinx Unidx is an identity-based club that supports Latino-identified students at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington. A couple of our primary goals are to make our culture a greater presence on our predominantly white campus, to support Latino students, to find our voices, and to bring our vibrate culture onto campus. We have done a variety of events like our Ayotzinapa demonstration, Boycott Driscoll Berries protests, Latino Youth Summit, Death of Diveristy Day of the Dead Altar and various identity building workshops but one of our largest events are our Annual Latinos Unidos Scholarship Dinner. The University of Puget Sound's (UPS) Latinos Unidos will be hosting its 2nd Annual Latinos UnidosScholarship Dinner on Friday March 3th from 6pm -10pm at the Univeristy of Puget Sound's Upper Marshall Hall.
What we hope to achieve with this event is establishing a connection with professionals in our area. We hope to bring as many as 60 - 80 Latinos professional from various organizations. We have around 180 seats for our entire event and we have around 40 students in our club so we have a lot of seats for community members that we wish to fill.
All of the money raised will go toward the Latinos Unidos Leadership Scholarship awarded every year to a student from immigrant background that will go toward their tuition. We are also hoping to endow our scholarship so that our university can give it every year for the rest of the school's existance.
We hope you can join us!
