Read a letter from Dr. Cecilia (CC) Josephine Aragón, Chair/Executive Director


The Wyoming Latina Youth Conference is held at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, Wyoming. It hosted by the Wyoming Latina Youth Center which is under the umbrella of the University of Wyoming and headed by Dr. Cecilia Aragón, Professor of Latino/Latina Studies.

As founder and chair for the last 22 years, Dr. Ann Redman says "it is an honor to work with so many amazing committee members, teen advisors and attendees. We have had outstanding keynote speakers and I have learned so much from everyone who has played a part in the success of the conference. I am grateful to the faculty at the University of Wyoming for understanding the importance of the conference and taking it under its wing. It is time for me to sit back and hand the torch over to Dr. Aragón and her committee. I'm grateful that the conference will continue its good work and continue to change the lives of our young Latinas. A HUGE thank you to our sponsors and supporters. You ALL ROCK!!! God Bless you."
