New Logo for C/LS: We want to thank ASU undergraduate student Lucia Sandoval and “Cultural Sponge” for designing the new logo for the journal. The flower image represents a group of women collectively working together. The swirl symbols on the side of the logo represent speaking out for those who need to be heard. A book and a sun can also be seen, both encompassing growth and change.
New Website for C/LS: It’s taken a year of meetings and collaboration to launch C/LS’ new website, but here it is! We proudly ask you to peruse the website and bring to our attention any oversights, corrections, etc. Our new website would not have been possible without the fabulous work of Seline Szkupinski Quiroga and Lee Hodson of VizRED Digital Media and Web Design. It was a delight to work with both of you! If you have any questions or comments about our website, please email MALCS Webjefa Elena Avilés, email@example.com.
