Abstract

Latinos are the fastest growing segment of the population in the United States of America, especially in the state of Iowa. To reflect this demographic change, this interactive session will examine the social and societal myths and stereotypes of Latinos and their cultures. Participants will engage in a discussion based on their own knowledge of the Latino/a cultures and people to increase interaction free of the burden of myths and stereotypes. Additionally, strategies and resources will be provided to help diminish the power of misconceptions about this ethnic group. Session attendees will enhance their awareness of the myths and stereotypes of this diverse culture.
