An Unique Space for Multicultural Families

Who We Are

Multicultural Familia™ is a not-for-profit, multi-author platform that is dedicated to empowering and making visible today’s modern families.  Founded in 2011 by Chantilly Patiño and a collaborative group of multicultural bloggers, Multicultural Familia™ is a community supported project, aimed at promoting open discussions about the conversations that are most relevant to mixed race families and which celebrate multicultural lifestyle.

Multicultural Familia™ is a platform for educators, bloggers, industry professionals and families who want to express their individuality, their passions and their concerns.  We welcome you to share your insights, to report the news from your unique perspective and to educate us on your personal reality…because no one can tell your story but you.

What We Do

Multicultural Familia™ serves a diverse community of mixed race and multicultural families who want to both share their experiences and connect with other diverse families and individuals.  Our readership is made up of families, as well as students and educators who value our site as a resource in their classrooms and learning centers.  Our hope is that we continue to be a resource for those who want to learn more about mixed race identity, cultural awareness and diversity inclusion, among other topics.

At Multicultural Familia™ we advocate for change and we acknowledge the unique stories of mixed (race, culture, faith) families in America and abroad.  We strive to create an open and honest community where candid discussions can occur between individuals from a variety of social backgrounds.  Multicultural Familia™  partners with websites and organizations that promote critical thinking and we take a progressive/activist approach in everything we do.  Whether the discussion is about race, gender, career, relationships or parenting…we want to provide opportunities for open discussion and personal growth.

Our Mission

Our mission is to create a safe space where individuals and families can explore the topics of race, gender and identity, as well as think critically about these issues and bring them to light in their own conversations online, at home and in the workplace.  We want to educate and empower our readers, as well as invite them to share their personal stories and connect with each other through this unique platform.  We encourage educators and professionals to add their expertise to the conversation and we hope that each and everyone of our readers will benefit from the diversity of voices and perspectives shared here.

At Multicultural Familia™, our objective is to put people and their experiences first.  Our priority is to be both relevant and honest about the challenges that multicultural and mixed race families face, while also providing educational opportunities that can benefit our global community.

We welcome anyone who has something to share, to add their voices to this platform.  Learn more about how you can get involved by clicking on the links below.
