Successful LRT Ethnic Studies Discussion, Link to Recording, and Action You Can Take

We had a highly successful LRT Roundtable Academy Discussion on Examples of Implementing Ethnic Studies curriculum in School Districts with over 65 participants and with LRT board member Fabian Pavon; Professors Gilda Ochoa and Enrique Ochoa, and Ethnic Studies teacher Olga Ureña. All provided concrete examples of how schools can develop curriculums that bring to center stage the contributions of our intersectional communities who (because of colonization, racism, sexism, classism, or homophobia) have been historically excluded. Thank you also to Madeline Rios, the interpreters Daniel Tamayo and Rebecca Knight, and question facilitator Angela Sanbrano.

In addition, board member Fabian Pavon has requested that our members sign the Petition to integrate Ethnic Studies into the curriculum and as a graduation requirement at Pomona Unified School District and sign a petition to Governor Newsom to sign AB1460 which would require the California State University to make Ethnic Studies a graduation requirement:
