The third meeting of the SSYAC was held in collaboration with the Smithsonian Latino Center. During our pre-meeting activity, we proto-typed the “Latino Headliners and Difficult Conversations” program. We used the creation of comics to explore multiple perspectives of sensitive historical and contemporary issues that pertain to the US Latino experience. Staff from the Smithsonian Latino Center and Smithsonian Exhibits guided us as we explored the multiplicity of immigration realities, and focused on the personal stories that explain why people move

We also discussed the responses to the previous assignment about learning and education experiences in museums with staff from the Smithsonian's Associate Provost for Education and Access office.

KEYWORDS: immigration, migration, forced migration, Latino, maker, making, comic, teen council, student engagement
