The Latino and Latina Roundtable of San Gabriel and Pomona Valley invite you to their 16th Annual Cesar Chavez Breakfast. (virtual)

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 virtually Friday, September 25, 2020, from 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Because of the coronavirus crisis, our organization was forced to postpone our annual Cesar Chavez breakfast fundraiser last March until September 25. When we postponed it last March we envisioned that we could have the face-to-face event in September but with the spread of COVID-19 it became clear that this would be impossible. Now, we will be holding a virtual event that will honor leaders in our region who have exemplified the principles and values of Cesar Chavez including: 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 the following students who exemplify the values of connecting their studies to community engagement and social change:

Our organization has historically been a volunteer organization that has relied on this one fundraiser to fund our efforts, which include advocacy, community events, and scholarships for local students. More recently, our board has moved to develop a strategic plan to ensure the sustainability of our organization on a long-term basis. As part of that plan, we have established an office, hired a director, and are looking at other means of support to fund our efforts. It is in this context that I am writing to you to donate to our annual Cesar Chavez Breakfast.

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.
