Kiara is the Director of Programs for LatinxEd, a nonprofit educational initiative in North Carolina. The initiative provides targeted, multiyear support to Latinx students and immigrant families who are striving for higher education and greater opportunity. LatinxEd’s vision for Latinx student success begins with a culturally sustaining education system that values and honors the humanity of communities of color. To achieve this mission, LatinxEd hosts various programs where youth are provided a healing space and community to reflect on their unique experiences as southern Latinx leaders and learners.
