The afrolatin@ forum raises awareness of Latin@s of African descent in the United States. We advance the visibility of Black Latin@s through dialogue and action and promote an understanding of the AfroLatin@ experience. The emphasis is guided by a transnational perspective that recognizes the centrality of race in today’s global reality and the struggle for social justice. The afrolatin@ forum affirms the crucial role of AfroLatin@s in the struggle against racial and ethnic discrimination. We commit ourselves to building and strengthening ties among AfroLatin@s, and with other communities of color. In view of the current racial climate in this country, we insist on the legitimate place of AfroLatin@s at the “Black” and “Latino” tables, AfroLatin@s are both.
