Latino Heritage Month: Dr. Miguel Gallardo - Faith, Family…and Everything Else: A Journey in Unlearning
Please join us on October 3rd at 6PM PST for the next upcoming speaker series celebrating Latino Heritage Month! GSEP's Dr. Miguel Gallardo will discuss Faith, Family, and Everything Else.
There is no question that the current times have elucidated, in profound ways, divided and divisive relationships across many in the United States and Internationally. As Dr. Gallardo reflects on Latinx Heritage Month, he is reminded of both the strengths, values, and legacies of those who came before us, and also the continued need to self-reflect, revisit, and unlearn in order to create a better future for those that follow. Latinx communities have much to offer our communities, which he hopes to illustrate through his own journey, which has been a journey of relying heavily on Catholicism and Familia. Dr. Gallardo is a Professor of Psychology and Director of Aliento, The Center for Latinx Communities at Pepperdine University. He teaches courses on multicultural and social justice, advocacy, and Latinx professional practice issues.
