Students, faculty and community partners alike will find "Civic Engagement in Diverse Latinx Communities: Learning From Social Justice Partnerships in Action" accessible not only because it includes an array of examples regarding Latinx civic engagement, but also because it demonstrates that personal experiences are powerful tools for the production of new knowledge. This talk, and the book on which it is based, reveals an epistemology of social justice that aims to investigate and develop a new Latinx community-university praxis for how to engage with diverse communities in the 21st century.
