The Mexicanx Initiative was a campaign led by SFF artist John Picacio to sponsor attending memberships to Worldcon 76 in San Jose and award them to fifty Mexicanx artists, writers, filmmakers, culture shapers, and fans, in order to increase Mexicanx representation in science fiction and fantasy. The project was a finalist for the 2019 Hugo Award for Best Related Work.
