Tejanos have always had an outsized impact on the identity and culture of Texas. Tejano history is Texas history. However, the Tejano impact on Texas is not only historical, but it also continues to this very day. Join us for a conversation with The Honorable Mayra Flores, George Benavides, Art Martínez de Vara, and TPPF’s Joshua Treviño.

The Foundation will also debut new and groundbreaking research, never before done or attempted, on the origins and nature of the Mexican-American diaspora in the United States.

Complimentary lunch will be provided for in-person attendees. You can also tune in online via livestream.
