"The 2018 conference proved to be a good place for participants from thirteen states to explore collaboration and unity, in contrast to the nation's climate. The 17th Cambio de Colores Conference, titled 'Latinx in the Heartland: Fostering Resilience and Cross-Cultural Connections,' was held in Kansas City. The title of the conference was developed by the planning committee, who sought to represent the need to respond to the uncertainty and dread and create a community of collaboration. Cambio de Colores seeks to facilitate integration and wellbeing through knowledge and practice. ... This 17th Conference Proceedings includes the abstracts of the 90 presentations and workshops cover the six conference theme tracks: Change & Integration, Economic Development, Civil Rights & Political Participation, Education, Health, and Youth Development. It also includes three invited papers: an initiative in Iowa to improve healthy retail practices, foster cultural pride in youth participating in 4-H day camps in Southern California, and the use of digital tools to share immigration related issues."--Introduction.
