Highlighted by a keynote address by Richard “Cheech” Marin, the 2022 LEAD Summit showcased stories, accomplishments and sacrifices made by the Latino community over the last 50 years while calling on the younger generation to continue the work.
Rosalio Muñoz’s talk is part of this year’s theme for the LEAD Summit revisiting and commemorating social movements from the last 50 years, including the birth of Chicano-ethnic studies, the school walkouts/blowouts, bilingual education and the Chicano Moratorium.
