The Latinx Youth Summit is cancelled for 2020.
September 17, 2020: The LYS co-Chairs, Sarah Lambert and Katie Newcomb, have spent the past several months discussing different formats and ways we could still make the Summit happen, and ultimately there is no way to do so that is equitable and doesn’t put even more work on educators' and students' plates. We truly care about you and the youth you work with, and we have no desire to make things even more difficult for you. While we’re sad we won’t be able to provide this opportunity this year, we believe that the best way we can support you all in this moment is to create space for your rest and restoration. Your health and well-being matters.
We do fully intend for the Summit to happen next year, hopefully in its usual in-person format. We are sad that we won't be able to celebrate in Iowa City this year, but Latinxs are a resilient community who understand the importance of protecting and supporting each other. We're looking forward to learning together in 2021 and are sending each of you strength and warmth as we continue to navigate this new life.
Please contact either of the co-Chairs with any questions or concerns:
