In collaboration with the group End Toxic Machismo, TCSPP community psychology students will be presenting «Remembering Matti» to share the history and development of Machismo in LatinX Communities. Using the latest research by LatinX psychologists and social scientists, we will be deconstructing the current patterns of male socializations and becoming aware of the negative psycho-social-spiritual implications that are perpetuated by oppressive societies during past and present colonization. The presentation integrates LatinX feminist theory to support the psychological and spiritual decolonization of false narratives that are put on communities of color.

Radical healing will be encouraged through the conscious and collaborative rewriting of healthy relationships amongst all gender expressions and identities though a special project led by Aldo Reyes who is currently working on a series of Zines created by and for the community.

Our mission is to empower communities through knowledge and the opportunity to envision a healthier, happier present and future with the intention to inspire radical healing in action.
