The EP360 initiative is a multifaceted effort to reframe the narrative around our El Paso identity. It’s based on a decolonized and ethnographic philosophy that focuses more on culture and historical context rather than modern beliefs and presuppositions. It’s only with this holistic approach that we can begin to articulate the issues that have plagued our region for centuries. This perspective can hopefully shed light on the complexities entangled into our own understanding of what it means to be from El Paso.
