This is to inform you that the Latino and Latina Roundtable board has decided to move our meeting (that was originally set for this Saturday, October 12th) to Saturday, October 19th at the same time (1 PM) and the same place (the Solidarity Center (1460 E. Holt Ave., Entrance #3 – Room 6 in Pomona). This change came as a result of requests from our members who cited that there are three major events in Pomona that day that our members want to attend: the Pomona 5K, the Indigenous Day at which Dolores Huerta is scheduled to be at, and a “College-Going Families” Day at Cal Poly led by Lorena Marquez and the Pomona Leadership Network. We support all theses events and will support all of them including Indigenous Day at Ganesha Park from 10 AM to 7 PM. At our October 19th, we will proceed as planned to take nominations for seven at-large open positions on the LRT board – and you can send in your nomination or that of someone else through e-mail (see the message below). Remember, you must be a paid member of the organization to nominate and to be able to have a final vote in November election. If you are not a member but want to become one, please send your request through e-mail to Jose Calderon or Angela by November 17th.
