UNIDOS: Voices from the Arizona Frontlines
Date(s) - Tuesday, July 16, 2013
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Presented by: UIC Latin American Recruitment and Educational Services and the Latino Cultural Center
What is the importance of ethnic studies programs? How can Chicago education leaders and Arizona student leaders unite in the effort to save their educational resources?
Recently, educational programs have been transformed or eliminated in Chicago and Arizona by legislators, which has sparked massive community mobilizations. Join us for an interactive conversation with Arizona organization, UNIDOS. They are a youth-led coalition of critical thinkers whose purpose is to stand in defense of ethnic studies and all injustices within education. While defending ethnic studies is the backbone of their creation, they stand as a direct force to mobilize, empower, and educate youth.
If you require any accommodations please contact us at least three days before the event.
