Support your nonprofits! 🙏

Dear LRT Friends,

We hope this email finds you and your loved ones healthy and well. Today is a big day for non-profits. Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to share our gratitude and to highlight our work. No one can deny the importance of non-profit organizations in our communities, especially during this pandemic.

The Latino and Latina Roundtable is no different. We count on your support to keep our doors open and our mission alive. Although this pandemic has kept us physically apart, my belief is that we will come out of this stronger. We have learned new ways to organize, created new partnerships, and along the way have tapped into our creativity to uplift our community.

Please support us,  We have two options- a Facebook Fundraiser and also a Go Fund Me- Charity page.



We hope to go into 2021 with our new strategic plan and a renewed commitment to bring the issues that impact our communities to the forefront.
A heartfelt thanks to each and everyone of you for being part of the Latino and Latina Roundtable community and for believing in our work! We see you, we hear you, we love you!

In Solidarity,

Lina Mira and LRT Board

Postpone to September “Request for your support of Annual Cesar Chavez Breakfast on March 27th in Pomona”

I am writing to ask for your support of the Latino and Latina Roundtable of the San Gabriel and Pomona Valley 16th annual Cesar Chavez breakfast fundraiser that will be held on Friday, March 27, 2020, from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. (with registration between 7 and 8 am) at the Sheraton Fairplex Conference Center, Exposition Center 8, 601 W. McKinley Avenue, Pomona, CA 91768.  In the last year, the Latino and Latina Roundtable has moved forward in sustaining  an office and a director. As in the past, we have continued to advance our immigrant rights, community development, and education work through the commitment of dozens of volunteers and the resources that are raised from this yearly fundraiser.  In keeping with our grass-roots organizing character, we continue to keep the cost at a minimum to ensure that the tradition is in keeping with the celebration of the life of Cesar Chavez and the many leaders, from all backgrounds, who have historically given of their lives to ensure a future with justice and equity. In keeping with the tradition of honoring leaders in our region who have exemplified the principles and values of Cesar Chavez, the Roundtable this year is honoring: Teresa Romero, President of the United Farmworkers Union; Jeanette Ellis-Royston, President of the Pomona Valley Branch of the NAACP; Mario and Cecilia Suarez, posthumous award for their contributions as educators; and John Nolte, community-based lawyer (Community Star award as member of the Latino and Latina Roundtable).  In addition, Social Justice Scholarships will be presented to students from the region who exemplify the values of connecting their studies to community engagement and social change.
