Raices Cultura’s Nepantler@s was created in 2013 by muxeres participating in Raices programming.Las Nepantler@s is a group created by young womyn of color from the Eastern Coachella Valley. Nepantlas as defined by Gloria Anzaldua is “a space between worlds” a Nahuatl term meaning “tierra entre medio”. It is a space where transformations happen though unstable, unpredictable precarious and always in transition. As a group we name ourselves L@s Nepantler@s, this space is an opportunity for us to discuss issues affecting self identified, young womyn of color in the Coachella Valley around race, class, gender and sexuality. Not only will space serve as a space of discussion, it will also serve as a space to create positive change.
Want to be part of Nepantler@s, we will be hosting a retreat in November.
