This is a reminder of your invitation to join the Latino and Latina Roundtable Community Development Committee, NAACP Pomona Valley Chapter, and the Pomona Unified School district to participate in a presentation and discussion with Betty Hung, from the College for All Coalition, on Thursday, November 10 at 7 PM at the PUSD board room (800 S. Garey Ave.) in Pomona.  The presentation and discussion will focus on SB-1050 College for All and how the funding from this legislation will provide more funding for college readiness resources, expand college enrollment slots, and expand educational opportunity for LCFF plus students and students from first generation backgrounds.  With Pomona being an LCFF+ school district, it will receive funding for these purposes. There will be an opportunity for  Q & A and audience participation after the presentations.

Community Forum on immigrant Rights

The Community Development Committee of the Latino and Latina Roundtable invites you to a forum on recent contemporary developments on immigrant rights issues – (including a Supreme Court case that will exclude immigrants from being counted in how Congressional districts are developed) —  and responses (including campaigns for the right of immigrants to vote, continued support for DACA/PACA, —  and what we can do to advance legalization efforts).   The forum, including presentations by  Angela Sanbrano, John Nolte, Jose Calderon, and Madeline Rios, will facilitate  discussion by all those attending on these issues and the road ahead.  ?xml:namespace prefix = “o” ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” /

Ballot Initiative Forum

Click here for more details on this event.

We need your help in turning out participants for the Ballot Initiative Forum this next Wednesday, October 10th at Our Lady Of Assumption in Claremont.  A lot of our friends will be going to the polls without knowing what the ballot propositions are all about.  There are too many propositions on the ballot that deeply affect our communities (from funding for education to the future of unions to ending the death penalty, etc.) — for us to be complacent.  This forum is an opportunity to organize others, to inform them on the propositions, and to get out their invformed vote.  We are asking each member to commit themselves to invite 5 people to the forum.  You have already received leaflets on the forum.  Please send the announcement to your listservs and place it on facebook.  Let everyone you interact with know about the forum.  In particular, focus on five friends, call them, take them out to coffee or a nice restaurant, buy them a gift, and invite them to the forum.  Please pass out leaflets at any meeting you attend.  Most of all, remind yourself and don’t forget:
