Norma Elia Cantú will read from her new novel, Cabañuelas (University of New Mexico Press, 2019), the successor to her award-winning Canícula: Snapshots of a Girlhood en la Frontera, which chronicles her childhood experiences on the border. Nena leaves Laredo, Texas, and moves to Madrid, Spain, to research the historical roots of traditional fiestas in Laredo. Immersing herself in post-Franco Spain and its rich history, its food, music, and fiestas, Nena finds herself falling for Paco, a Spaniard. Nena’s research and experiences teach her about who she is, where she comes from, and what is important to her. As her work comes to a close, Nena must decide where she can best be true to her entire self: in Spain with Paco or in Laredo, her home, where her job and family await her return. After reading, Cantú will talk about the craft of writing a novel—in celebration of National Novel Writing Month (November).

Are your organization's communications and marketing materials culturally inclusive? Join us to learn how to incorporate inclusive language and content into your communications plans. 

Learning Objectives

  • Understand common mistakes nonprofits make when developing communications plans.
  • Define and understand culturally inclusive messaging and branding.
  • Acquire the skills to implement culturally inclusive communications strategies in your organization’s branding and message development.


Historically, organization’s advertising and communications plans have neglected to incorporate members outside of the dominant culture, oftentimes leaving communities of color without any sense of personal connection with many of the organizations within their communities. In this session, participants will learn how to implement culturally responsive communications strategies and audience engagement to include diverse perspectives and experiences.

This session will include discussions, group work and other hands-on activities that will assist nonprofit organizations in developing messaging and branding that is reflective of diverse audiences. We will discuss strategies that illustrate a sincere understanding of various perspectives, experiences and ideologies and ways to connect that with your organization’s vision and mission. Whether it be verbiage used on social media, newsletter content or website images, this training will help ensure all discourse used - visual, written or spoken - is culturally sensitive and inclusive.




Communications managers and coordinators, executive directors, and board of directors

Montezuma Ball is over 100 years old, with the first event held in 1902 as part of the New Mexico Territorial Fair, otherwise known as the New Mexico State Fair. This tradition continued until the last historic Ball was held at the Alvarado Hotel in Albuquerque in 1968. In 2000, Heritage Hotels and Resorts restored this New Mexico
tradition as part of the inauguration of its new Alvarado Ballroom at Hotel Albuquerque. In the 19 years since, Montezuma Ball has raised millions of dollars for deserving nonprofits across New Mexico and continues to support organizations working to preserve and celebrate New Mexican culture and traditions. Montezuma Ball 2019 benefits Dual Language Education of New Mexico and Junior Achievement of New Mexico.
Be a part of this historic fundraising event and support New Mexico’s history, heritage, and traditions as you partner with Dual Language Education of New Mexico, Junior Achievement of New Mexico, and Heritage Resorts for Montezuma Ball 2019!
