Guest Lecture: Diversity of the fast growing population in the U.S.As one of the fastest growing populations in the United States, it is important to understand the heterogeneity and complexity of the people that comprise this community. In this session, participants will learn about the various labels that have been used to describe this diverse population and gain insight into the perspectives of those whom these labels aim to identify. Furthermore, participants will learn about the intersectionality of identities that this group experiences as well as why it is important to understand their history and future in the United States.
