Mónica Ramírez, center, co-created the Raizado Festival, which took place over three days in Aspen in August and September 2022.

A three-day celebration of Latino culture, power and history took place earlier this month in Aspen.

Mónica Ramírez and her collaborators designed the Raizado Festival to broadly change the way people see and think about Latinx people. They plan to bring the festival back for 10 years.
