Mission Statement

The purpose of the Section on Latina/Latino Sociology (SLS) is to encourage and promote empirical research, theoretical development, and the teaching of issues relating to the Latina and Latino population, particularly in but not only the United States. The terms Latina and Latino are used to designate all individuals or groups of individuals who are identified or self-identity with the racial/ethnic membership attributed to Latin American origin and/or ancestry. Any member of the American Sociological Association who shares these research or teaching interests is encouraged to become a member of this section.
