After previewing the 2010 documentary Schooling the World, we will dive into analyzing what Latino student achievement has been in our modern system of education.

Date: Tuesday, December 7, 2021 at 6:30pm-8:00pm

The identity of an educator is critical to the success of their students. Learn about the intersecting potential that exists when educators move from being neutral to having a critical purpose. We'll examine the qualities of a good urban educator and connect it to the concepts of self and community actualization.

Session 4

Title: The Power of The People

Presenter: Francisco Baires, Community Advocate & Constanza Segovia, Founding Member, Coordinator

Date: Thursday, December 16, 2021 at 6:30pm-8:00pm

The story of Latinos in the United States includes many different struggles and triumphs throughout the history of this country and up to today. These include well-documented struggles led by well-known historical figures as well as lesser-known, but no less important, efforts led by local community leaders building the power of the people to win much-needed change.

In this fourth online session of the series, Latino activists will share how they built collective power, mobilized community, and won important changes for the people.
