'Latinx' is a term that acknowledges the gender binary inherent in the Spanish language and attempts to be inclusive of the entirety of the gender spectrum. As a result of our targeted audience for our teaching and learning services, El Futuro has decided to use the term 'Latinx' in La Mesita programming. However, we continue to use the terms 'Latino/Latina' in our clinical work. We hold no expectation of other organizations or individuals to make similar linguistic decisions.
