Inspiring Discussion @ NACCS: Thank You

Thank you to all who attended the focus group discussion at the National Association for Chicana/o Studies conference last Friday! The conversation was informative and inspiring. We learned about pioneering projects and met innovative and caring people. The members of the Latino Digital Content Working Group appreciated the time and attention everyone gave us. For those who attended, but did not get a chance to sign in please feel free to send me your contact information. Once our survey is ready we will email out the link, as well as post it here.  Thank you once again for taking part in our focus group. We would love to hear what you thought about our discussion.
