Thank you to all those who have participated so far in our #MoreThanSombreros campaign. Our goal is to celebrate the rich culture of the Mexican community and bring an awareness on how some images may be stereotypical.

We choose to highlight this on Cinco de Mayo, a day in which Americans thinks its ok to put on a sombrero and mustaches in order to “look Mexican” and drink Mexican beer/tequila and eat tacos.HIlarious or Offensive

Even our own teaching catalogs promote this. They reduce the culture to sombreros and donkeys. And they call it “hilarious”!

On twitter, we’ve been posting facts about Mexico using #MoreThanSombreros. Check out our pinterest board of images that promote the culture and history of Mexico.

Keep those tweets coming!
