La Raza Caucus

La Raza Caucus logo

La Raza Caucus, in conjunction with the Latino/Latina Communication Studies Division, fosters the study of communication issues and their attendant intersections with matters of concern for Latino/Latina communities throughout the Americas. The caucus embraces an intersectional approach to identity that considers the ways race, ethnicity, class, gender, nation, and sexuality converge to shape Latino/Latina experiences. Members of the division and caucus embrace a variety of methodological perspectives, including critical, qualitative, and quantitative. The goals of the caucus are educational advocacy, networking, recruitment and retention, and cultural promotion.
