about the encuentro

Encuentro 2022 is a three-day convening of LGBTQ Latinx Southerners and allies to improve the healthcare capacity and build bridges between emerging multi-racial and multi-lingual Southern Latinx communities and their kindred. 

This year, we will be convening in person and we're proud to invite you to our celebration of Latinos in the South 15 year anniversary. We invite you to join us in our festivities but also as we spotlight the work in AL, FL, GA, LA, MS, NC, SC, TN, and TX while centering our wellness. 

Our convening will feature panel presentations, workshops, and keynote speakers that will focus on wellness in the Latinx community as part of our linguistic, sexual, and financial health.

Our convening will take place at the 21C Hotel in Durham, NC:

 Our ENCUENTRO 2022 team recognizes that the health of our communities depends on centering the most afflicted and affected among us and we are committed to doing what we can to ensure the most accessible experience for all. 

language justice

This year, we will continue to ensure that all our sessions are available with English and Spanish interpretation and are excited to partner with tilde Language Justice Cooperative to do so. We look forward to building our capacity to offer language services in languages beyond English and Spanish such as ASL, Arabic, Portuguese, and others.
