Decolonizing Our Familias & Raising Future Ancestors

The movement to #EndChanclaCulture will take all of us doing our part to unlearn the legacy of physical, psychological, and emotional violence that our ancestors learned through our colonizers. The End Chancla Culture Introductory Workshop will provide a foundational overview of the origins of Chancla Culture, the systemic & social factors that contribute to its prevalence, the many ways it manifests, as well as beginning steps to take to break this cycle.


You know the ones in which the punchline is a mom chasing after her child with a chancla, or calling him a pendejo in response to anything or manipulative saying “¿no me quieres?” (you don’t love me?) when a child doesn’t want to share with them, give them a kiss, or hug them. 

And even if we felt uncomfortable about it, we probably laughed when we saw it. Survivor’s humor is a real thing.

But as we’ve had our own kids, we’ve come to realize that those jokes really aren’t funny. And we’re recognizing that being on the receiving end of such behaviors hurt us and impacted us in ways that we’re still unpacking today.

And there’s no way in hell that we’ll do the same to our children. Not us.

We’re done with the verbal, emotional, and psychological chancletazos we received growing up.


We want more connection.

We want more expressed love. 

We want to #EndChanclaCulture

You’ll walk away with a working understanding of

What Chancla Culture is, its origins, as well as why it's harmful
The effects that colonialist-adapted practices have on children
How colonial social constructs are still impacting our familias today
What it means to decolonize your parenting & End Chancla Culture
Practices you can explore to begin decolonizing your familia

What our comunidad has to say

We're ready to see change in our community!

"Attending this workshop made me realize that me and many others are ready to see change in our community and I am motivated to learn more and get the message out there (end chancla culture) to see the underprivileged communities blossom."
Stephanie O.

What a powerful presentation!

"I found this workshop incredibly insightful, particularly for helping me to understanding my own mother and family history. The clear line the workshop drew between the arrival of conquerers and colonizers to changes in parenting practices was an eye opener for me. I really appreciated the naming of harm while simultaneously offering compassion and empathy. What a powerful presentation - thank you!"

The Ending Chancla Culture Introductory Workshop will support you to set a strong foundation for raising future ancestors who won’t need to heal from their childhoods⁣.


Hola, queridos! Soy Leslie Priscilla. I’m a first-generation non-black Chicana mother to three bicultural children. I’m a descendant of Indigenous Tarahumara Rarámuri and Spanish lineages, and I’ve resided on occupied Tongva and Acjachemen land, a.k.a Orange County, CA, all my life.

I’ve been working with children, caregivers, and familias for over 14 years, both as a teacher and through work with various mental health organizations throughout Orange County. But now I share my medicine with you all through Latinx Parenting, the bilingual organization I founded.

Latinx Parenting is rooted in children’s rights, social & racial justice, and antiracism, and offers family education and support that is trauma-informed, healing-centered, amplifying of our strengths, advocacy, and culturally sustaining of and for the Latinx community and its allies.

Through curated and passionate content, workshops, and courses, Latinx Parenting supports parents, caregivers, and former Latinx children to heal their lineages, raise thriving future ancestors, and create more connection with themselves, their children, and their cultura. My belief is that through this work we can leave a legacy of thriving for our gente. I’m so happy that you’re with us on this journey!
