Collection Creator Biography:

The Latinx Collective formed as an unofficial student organization in the fall of 2015 with the goal to support Latinx students on campus and encourage University administration to respond to the state of their lived and varied student experiences. Two of the key organizers of the Collective include Briana Christophers, Princeton Class of 2017, and Nicole Gonzalez, Princeton Class of 2016, who at the time of the Collective's inception both served as co-presidents of a separate student organization, Princeton Latinos y Amigos.

Specific campus and national events that mobilized the Collective's initial efforts in the fall of 2015 include a Mexican-themed party at Princeton and an incident involving campus police and a Latinx Dartmouth student at Brown University during the 2015 Latinx Ivy League Conference.
