Who We Are

Princeton University's Latinx Perspectives Organization is intent on diversifying what it means to be Latinx and raising awareness of Latinx issues.


PULPO aims to:


• Unify Princeton's diverse Latinx community

• Establish safe-spaces for Latinx identified individuals

• Generate discussion surrounding issues pertinent to our communities

• Critically evaluate traditional notions of what it means to be Latinx

LGBT+ Latinx

We provide support for Latinx students through identity-specific programming from our three branches. Our branches work to combat the marginalization of various intersectional identities within our community. Our events work to provide spaces for LGBT+ Latinx students, combat anti-Blackness and anti-Indigenous attitudes within our community, and continue to strengthen and grow our Princeton Latinx family.

We work to provide spaces for our LGBT+ Latinx community to come together, have meaningful conversations, and build relationships with one another. We host study breaks, dinners, and invite Trans and Queer Latinx speakers to share their experiences and reflect on their activism.

Coordinator: Arlene Gamio '18, Adalberto Rosado '19, and Jamie Ayón-Facundo '17

Women's Branch

We seek to deconstruct misogyny and nuance what it means to be a Latinx woman. We host dinner conversations and events to empower and support Latinas.

Coordinator: Maria Garavito '17

Diversity Branch

PULPO's diversity branch works to provide programming that centers Black, Indigenous, and Undocumented Latinx experiences. We host dinner conversations, panels, and speaker events to discuss discrimination and intolerance in our community and how we can combat it.

Projects and Events

 

Activism

PULPO is dedicated toward promoting change on campus and in the national theater through educational campaigns, protests, demonstrations, and collaboration with other students groups on campus.

We seek to actively support our undocumented Latinx community through partnerships with DREAM Team and meetings with administration to provide more resources and information for students with and without DACA at Princeton.

We believe activism is crucial toward liberating our communities as we take up space and promote unapologetic and uncompromising Latinx narratives.

Annual Language, Life, and Love

Come to PULPO ’s Language, Life, and Love: An Anthology of Latinx Stories to experience and show support for the stories of the members of Princeton’s Latinx Community! This event will be a public showcasing of the diverse narratives of the Latinx community on campus, highlighting the often-overlooked intersectionalities of identities within our community. Ultimately, PULPO is planning such an event as an insertion of a diverse set of Latinx voices into the Princeton experience that, historically and presently, fail to be captured.

If you’re interested in being in a photo collage of the many faces of the Latinx Community here at Princeton please email co-president, Jamie Ayón-Facundo, at jamiera@princeton.edu.

Paisa Dinner Series

Our "Paisa Dinner Series" are meant to bring together Mexican, Chicanx, and Mexican-American identified individuals within the Latinx community here at Princeton. Their objective is to create a greater sense of community and understanding among the Mexican and Chicanx community. These dinners will consist of buying groceries and communal cooking to create authentic Mexican dishes as a family! We may also have dinners catered by restaurants like El Chapin's in Princeton.

These dinners will be monthly!
