“So what we’re seeing is that ‘Latinx’ is providing another way for defining and representing the diversity of what is in fact a very complex community,” says Arlene Davila, professor of anthropology and American studies at New York University and founding director of the Latinx Project.

“A label that includes more of us will always be a better label,” she says.
