MEX talks 2018

@ Goodman Theatre

170 N Dearborn Street Chicago, IL 60601

Opening Thursday, September 6th, from 6PM - 8PM

MEX talks was created by Latinos Progresando to give Mexican and Mexican American leaders the platform to reflect on a shared identity and tell stories to inspire positive change.

This unique, highly-anticipated forum convenes a range of voices, including entrepreneurs, lawyers, students, teachers, and nearly everything in between. And just as the stage has been given to our most established community figures, MEX talks has expressly sought to elevate emerging leaders, whose stories haven’t yet been told.

Featuring world-renowned luchador “Cassandro” as the headline speaker, this year’s MEX talks is an exploration of the power and transformative potential of arts and culture within the Mexican experience.

One hundred percent of the proceeds generated are directed to Latinos Progresando’s programs and services.

Don’t wait even one minute to get your tickets–MEX talks always sells out, and we don’t want to see you miss it! Visit: to get your tickets.
