Second section is split in two. Left side reads in orange font, the presenter's bio, Socorro Garcia received a master's degree in Chicanx Studies from California State University, Northridge. She is the co-founder of Alma de Muxeristas and currently an advisory board with the Council de Manos to support by planning, strategizing, organizing, and mobilizing humanity within multiple signing communities that connect to and serve BIPOC Chicanx/Latinx populations. She has a deep passion for healing to create healthier emotions, allowing us to reconstruct ourselves in a new self-aware way.

Below presenter's bio is the workshop description written in black ink and reads: The workshop provides sign language interpreters with the tools for considering and understanding Latinx Deaf’s needs, while also providing accessibility in a healing space. Latinx Deaf people typically must deal with challenges, injustices, and oppressions based on not only by their being deaf, but also by other factors such as those related to their gender or their ethnicity. Participants also will learn how to recognize such factors, and how to avoid reinforcing this oppression.This in turn helps them provide Latinx Deaf with accessibility to content and a space in which they feel accepted and free of any prejudice.

Right side is an image of Socorro Garcia, A black and white photo of Socorro is shown, with her looking to the left pensively. Her hands are folded and resting on her chin; she has salt-and-pepper short hair. The background shows rocks, shaded in turquoise.

Below Socorro's image workshop objectives are listed in black ink
1. Participants will become aware of intersectional oppressions and how these oppressions affect Latinx Deaf on a daily basis.
2. Participants will report an understanding of the phonocentric perspective and how they can transition their perspectives to Latinx Deaf’s vision or perspective via cross-communication and cultural meditation.
3. Participants will become aware of healing spaces and how to preserve such spaces while being in solidarity with Latinx Deaf consumers.

Third section is split into two sections. Left side reads in black bold ink, ASL Communication is an Approved RID CMP Sponsor for Continuing Education Activities. This Power, Privilege, and Oppression program is offered for 0.4 CEUs at the Little/No ContentKnowledge Level.
