SPAN 232 - SPRING 2021
Multiple images spanish speakers

Learn about and from Latinx immigrants living and working in Champaign-Urbana. As you learn about their strengths and challenges, you will see how their realities reflect larger issues of immigration on a global, national and regional scale. You will hear directly from local Latinx leaders and people who stand alongside them, working toward immigrant justice.  

During this pandemic, students will not volunteer directly in our community organizations. We must protect the health of our Latinx community which is already disproportionately affected by the virus. The class will be taught via Zoom.

*SPAN 232 fulfills the US Minority cultures gen ed requirement. The course is taught in Spanish; anyone who grew up speaking Spanish at home (heritage learners) and/or has taken four years of high school Spanish can join the course and succeed.
