“As an intersectional feminist bookstore, it has always been important to [Cafe con Libros] to center the stories of womxn and femmes from around the globe. The immigrant experience bonds us in a common struggle that plays out differently for each one of us based on racial, economic, and social status. Despite our differences, the commonality of otherness unites us and these books unabashedly set fire to systems of oppression while celebrating the resilience of what it means to be an immigrant womxn of the Latinx diaspora.”
