Nexus Latinx was created based on the principle, “If you don’t know where you’ve come from, you don’t know where you’re going.” As more and more Latinx families move to the United States, the Latinx diaspora grows… And so does the disconnect between the diaspora and the understanding of their culture.
Latinx diaspora live in-between worlds. In the United States, they are considered minorities highly susceptible to poverty with different cultural norms.
