The event is starting off in full, with informative panels and empowering education. Live translation in both English and Spanish is available, as the presentations will be in both. The first panel starts off with hip hop artists talking about their own experiences and how they use their art in the fight for Chicana rights and a dialogue about that fight. There will then be a presentation of research on the topic by scholars, with critiques of neoliberalism and methods of healing to create new connections and growth in communities. After that there will be a continuation of the panel on hip hop and concluding thoughts about the fight for Chicana rights and how hip hop culture and art can be used to create new ways to fight those battles.
