Invitation to LRT Roundtable Academy Discussion Forum – May 26 – (7-9 PM)

This is your invitation to a Zoom online Roundtable Academy discussion on key issues that the Latino and Latina Roundtable is involved with (immigrant rights, education, and new economy) on Tuesday, May 26th from 7 – 9 PM – the zoom link is below and here:  https://pitzer.zoom.us/j/95977434289.  In its recent meetings, the LRT board has agreed that a forum is needed where members of the organization can have discussions and develop positions on key issues that the organization is working on.  Both board and membership meetings do not allow for the time that is needed to deepen the analysis on key issues.  Hence, this first “discussion” will include short summaries on the conditions that we are facing in this time of the coronavirus crisis, the issues that we are confronting, and plans for future discussion sessions.  The discussion on May 26th will include short presentations by Madeline Rios and Angela Sanbrano on immigrant rights; Fabian Pavon and Jose Calderon on Ethnic Studies and College for All; and John Nolte on the New Economy.  After the presentations, we will have an open discussion on the issues raised and future dates when we will deepen the issues in each area (with the outlook of gaining clarity on LRT positions regarding these issues).

This is Giving Tuesday and we request your support for the Latino and Latina Roundtable

Friends of the Latino and Latina Roundtable

We hope you are all doing well and staying healthy. Please consider supporting the Latino and Latina Roundtable on this Giving Tuesday. This is a global campaign to assist nonprofits during the COVID-19 pandemic. As you probably know, because of the coronavirus crisis, our organization has postponed our annual fundraiser until September 25 and because of that, we have been directly impacted. 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 we ask you to donate to the Latino and Latina Roundtable as part of #GivingTuesdayNow – May 5th – a day that has been designated a day of giving to local nonprofit organizations’

We understand that times might be difficult and many might not be able to make a financial contribution. If you cannot donate today, we understand, however please repost or share with your networks. If you have a birthday coming up, please ask your friends to make a gift in your honor. So far we are at 10% of our goal of $1,500.00.

We cannot do what we do without your support. Our work and advocacy continues, and it will long after this period is over, thanks to you!
