Harvard College Latino Men's Collective

For years now, a strong sense of division has existed within the Latino community at Harvard. The Latino Men's Collective's main purpose is to promote a sense of unity and cohesion among the Latino community at large. We realize that uniting the entire Latino community is difficult, and we hope to initiate this process through the merger of Latino males. It will hopefully be one of many future endeavors to promote a sense of community at Harvard that extends beyond country borders and renders spatial differences obsolete.
