Requesting your support

I fully appreciate your past support and am writing once again this year to ask for your support of the Latino and Latina Roundtable of the San Gabriel and Pomona Valley 19th annual Cesar Chavez breakfast fundraiser that will be held Friday, March 31, 2023, beginning at 8 AM.  This year’s breakfast will be in-person at the Fairplex in Pomona.  As part of our continued efforts to honor those who have exemplified the principles of using their lives on behalf of our communities, this year we are honoring the Pitzer College Workers and Student Alliance (who have won the right to be represented by UNITE-HERE), PUSD School Board Member and Founder of Laguna Tech College Arturo Jimenez, Lopez Urban Farm in Pomona, the National TPS Alliance, community star award recipient PUSD teacher and community organizer Ion Puschila, and local students who will be receiving Social Justice Scholarship awards.   

In the last two years, even, in the midst of the pandemic, our organization has moved forward in developing an office and a staff; in organizing cultural events such as Dia de Muertos and a Posada at the Urban Ranch; partnering with Pomona Unified on community school and college readiness initiatives, supporting ethnic studies, advancing local wealth-building economic development models, continuing immigrant and refugee rights actions, promoting clean and sustainable energy usage, supporting organized labor campaigns, carrying out voter registration and voter turn-out efforts, and taking the lead in moving local cities from at-large to district elections.  To continue to sustain these efforts, we now call on you to support our annual fundraiser.  

Please see the attached sponsorship levels that include e-tickets for the virtual event and recognition of your organization. You can also purchase individual ticket(s) at $75 per tickets.
