The primary goal of Raíces is to act as resource for the students of Latinx backgrounds and increase awareness on issues related to Latinx culture, history, philosophy, people and other facets of Latinx culture. Raíces is a safe space for Latinx students to learn more about their roots and express their culture in the Skidmore community. 

Raíces meets every other Thursday at 8 p.m. in the ICC.
