LHM Annual Keynote Address: Julian Castro
September 30, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The theme for this year’s Latinx Heritage Month is “Heels Pa’lante”. The slang phrase pa’lante is well known throughout various parts of Spanish speaking Latin America. Directly translated, it means to move forward. After the past 18 months of isolation, challenging political climates, and an overwhelming amount of unexpected grief – our committee wanted to focus on how we move forward as a community and as individuals. We are not going back to anything, rather we are gathering to go pa’lante together.
In line with our theme of moving forward, the keynote speaker will be Julian Castro. Castro is the Mayor of San Antonio, TX, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. We are excited to welcome Julian Castro to UNC to talk about how he has learned to move forward as a politician, a leader, and a man throughout his life’s victories and losses.
