Request to Support the LRT for Annual Cesar Chavez Breakfast Fundraiser

This is to let you know that our Latino and Latina Roundtable will be holding its annual Cesar Chavez breakfast fundraiser once again on Friday, March 26, 2021 (Cesar Chavez Day).  I know that some of you may get tired of our requests, but we are persistent in reaching out to you because we know that you know of our work and how, for years, it has been based on volunteers.  Now, for the first time, we have a director and an office and a vision of developing a staff.  Hence, to further advance our organizing efforts and our vision, we are asking for your support once again. As you know, our annual fundraiser is not just about sustaining our education, immigrant rights, college pipeline, environmental, and community economic development organizing – but is also aimed at bringing to center stage and honoring leaders and social justice scholarship students in our region who best exemplify the principles and values of Cesar Chavez.  On March 26th, the LRT will present scholarships to students who are exemplary in connecting their studies with community engagement.   Please help us in sharing the attached scholarship application with others (that has a due date of March 5th). 

It is with that spirit that I invite you to save the date of March 26th and to donate at the level that you or your organization can afford. Please see the attached sponsorship levels that include e-tickets for the virtual event and name listing in the program. You can also purchase individual ticket(s) at $50 per ticket, $25 for paid LRT members, and/or $10 for students and low-income individuals or retirees.   


You can go through Eventbrite to pay by credit card at- 

or Mail RSVP & payment to Latino and Latina Roundtable 1460 E Holt Ave, Mailbox 144, Pomona, CA 91767 (make checks payable to Latino/a Roundtable).  For information please call (909) 480-6267 or visit our website

Your membership renewal to Latino and Latina Roundtable

It is that time of year again to renew or to become a member of the Latino and Latina Roundtable of the San Gabriel and Pomona Valley. This organization, for years, has been on the frontlines in supporting our worker, immigrant, student, union, day laborer, LGBTQ, farmworker, women, faculty, teacher, faith-based, and multi-racial communities (through community-based organizing and educational forums).  In this period when we are facing the challenges of ensuring covid relief resources and responding to recent local and national right-wing attacks by building multi-racial advocacy efforts, we need your support more than ever.  As you know, our organization played a leading role in beating back similar actions by these forces who attempted to get local cities to oppose the pro-immigrant sanctuary bill SB-54.  To continue this work, as part of our strategic plan, we urge you to become a member.  The LRT, since its inception, has primarily depended on the commitment of community-based volunteers and organizers. We have survived primarily from one major fundraiser per year and donations from friends like you. Now, with an office, director, and developing staff – we are more than ever in need of your support.  Please become a member and, if possible, also donate to advance the work of our organization. 

The Annual Membership annual cost is:  

$25.00 for individuals  

$10.00 for students, retirees, and low-income individuals
