MEX talks

MEX talks is an annual speaker showcase created by Latinos Progresando to give Mexican and Mexican American leaders the platform to reflect on a shared identity and tell stories to inspire positive change.

This unique, highly-anticipated forum convenes a range of voices, including entrepreneurs, lawyers, students, teachers, and nearly everything in between. And just as the stage has been given to our most established community figures, MEX talks has expressly sought to elevate emerging leaders, whose stories haven’t yet been told.

This year we celebrate the 12th annual MEX talks: OWN IT, a declaration to own our identity, our histories, our evolving culture, our power, and our future.

Join us on Thursday, October 10, 2024 at Harris Theater for Music and Dance, 205 E Randolph St, Chicago.

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, JUNE 14TH!
