Join us for an afternoon of celebrating our Latin Jewish families, and learn about Olamim’s latest research findings on how Bay Area Latin Jewish families navigate our many identities while raising resilient, rooted and joyful children. Research presentation by Olamim’s founder and executive director, Ariela Ronay-Jinich, M.A.Ed; VOCES community media work by Dr. Analucia Lopezrevoredo, founder and directora ejecutiva of Jewtina y Co., and guest speaker Dr. Priya Mariana Driscoll of Mills College.

We’ll have antojitos, pozole, and a wonderful bilingual children’s program for your kids.

If you are raising children with multiple cultural heritages and languages, we warmly invite you to join and celebrate family together.

This program is brought to you by Olamim and Jewtina y Co, research grantees of the Jews of Color Initiative. Partners include Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice, Camp Tawonga, Kehilla Community Synagogue and PJ Library.

In case you were wondering...

What is El día de los niños? El día de los niños is a celebration based on childhood and literacy that began in 1997. Borrowing from the traditional Mexican holiday El día de los niños, the American version expanded to include literacy when acclaimed author Pat Mora took up the cause in 1997. A year later, the U.S. Congress officially designated April 30 as "Day of the Child."

Why niñes instead of niños? While the term niños (when referring to many children) is gender neutral, it still uses a gendered (masculine) term. Niñes is a modern approach to gender-neutral language that refers to children (plural) in a grammatically gender-neutral way.
