Mofongo

We are the sum of the experiences of our tribes. We are descendants. We are the people of the Middle Passage. And we're here to reflect, mourn, celebrate and connect over what that has given us today.

Mofongo is an NYC-based events platform that exists for the purpose of showcasing the multitude of experiences in the LatinX community.

This first event is in partnership with UPROSE, Brooklyn's oldest Latino community based organization. This summer UPROSE will be hosting its 7th NYC Climate Justice Youth Summit. Low income communities of color — and especially youth of color – face an unprecedented challenge: the intersecting crises of toxic pollution, rising sea levels, a predatory criminal justice system, and mounting inequality. The Climate Justice Youth Summit has become an incredibly effective cornerstone of developing young people of color for the leadership that these crises demand over the last six years.
