My second research project is with Dr. Lavariega in which we are working on a book entitled “Voces” about the Latino experience and issues facing Latinos in the United States. So far we have sent a prospectus to a publisher and are currently in correspondence. I have been recruiting people to write for the book and we will then edit from there.
Reading all of the different essays makes me very proud to be Latina and shows how diverse our experiences and perspectives are. There is also so much history and so many real issues we face every day that are given an important spotlight in this collection of essays.
